Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 90.7 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 6 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by MDSomm on 8/11/2014 & rated 93 points: This wine was fantastic. Had a great balance between reductive aromas and citrus/tree fruit with an accent from a judicial use of oak. The acidity was persistent and long but not green and I imagine it will age very well over the next 5-10 years. (1011 views)
 Tasted by Frank Murray III on 9/24/2013: Opened last night where it paired terrific with a kale, arugula salad with lime/olive oil dressing. Tonight, simply drinking at sunset without food to capture this note. There is a chill on this, too. Has a sea air aromatic, that freshness that comes with Chablis. To the palate, what stood out last night and also tonight is a core of pineapple, along with pear and green apple. When the wine warms up some, shedding the chill, the tropical aspect of the pineapple becomes central to the flavor. I enjoyed this fruit component, not one I have noted in some of the recent Chablis I have tasted. There may be a kiss of oak here too, adding some texture to the wine but if it's much, it's done smartly as there isn't any vanilla bean or marshmallow flavor muddling it up, fortunately. Finishes with the green apple flavor, some slate too. This seems a little bigger in body, more ripe in tone than the 2011 Butteaux, which I also bought and drank recently. Drink window? This is good now but the slate and green apple keep it fresh. Say now through 2017. (1618 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 7/12/2013: Medium yellow. Citrus and herb. Medium weight, very texturally alluring. It is nice to feel rather than taste the oak. Round feel, average acidity, good finishing dose of seashell. Not as soft as some wines of the vintage, but could use a bit more snap. (1583 views)
 Tasted by Gargantua on 5/31/2013: Poured into a wide mouth and allowed to aerate about 15 min, then poured back into the chilled bottle on ice. Feels like it has ripe fruit, goes tropical pineapple custard a bit, and offers a tiny prickle of heat on the way down; but a nice angular finish of minerally, dry extract and acid help it strike a certain balance. That godly Chablis seashell aroma pokes out after about an hour open and makes everything great. (1386 views)

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates


Chablis (Fédération de Défense de l'Appellation Chablis) | Chablis (Burgundy Wines)

2014 Vintage Notes:
"... a hybrid of 2004/2007 and 2010. The stone, citrus and limestone amalgam is exactly what we search for in Chablis as the style harkens to a day in the Cote de Beaune proper (1960's - 1980's) when wine was not meant to be consumed the week it was released, battonage was not used by all and new oak was rarely seen ... the texture is natural and 'of the vintage' not 'of the winemaker' .... Like Sancerre or the Loire in general, 2014 in Chablis is one of those rare years with extract and transparency. It appears to be a vintage for the "neoclassic" ages and those of us intent on cellaring the most terroir-driven (but still powerful) examples of vineyard, site-place and varietal will want to invest (heavily) in the magnetic and electric 2014's." - Jon Rimmerman
