Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 89.5 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 46 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Outplaying on 1/11/2015: We had three bottles of this. The first was excellent as it showed vibrantly with lime, tonic water, saline, citrus, light apple and some earthy minerals. The second bottle was corked and the third seemed a little fatter, with more baked apple and less mineral. Less vibrant and not as enjoyable. (350 views)
 Tasted by bin905 on 9/7/2014 & rated 90 points: Very pretty, round and flavorful with plenty of acidity. (716 views)
 Tasted by bin905 on 9/21/2013 & rated 90 points: This wine is crisp, bright, refreshing and well-balanced. The scent is citrus and fresh ocean. Lemon, green apple, mineral and a hint of sea salt are the flavors. (1531 views)
 Tasted by bin905 on 1/6/2013 & rated 88 points: Tasted quite tart. (2416 views)
 Tasted by Outplaying on 11/5/2012: Similar notes as with previous bottles except maybe a little more oak. Salty minerals, lemon, green apple and popcorn. This one also seemed a little more salty, which I like. Good QPR. (2827 views)
 Tasted by bcc725 on 10/20/2012: Well made and balanced, if lighter than I had hoped for...Didn't blow me away as much as other 2008's of the Macon have....but an effective drink with anything of the sea and air (except duck)...Won't purchase again. (2436 views)
 Tasted by cunni001 on 10/7/2012 & rated 90 points: light body, short finish, sour finish (2243 views)
 Tasted by Outplaying on 7/11/2012: Similar notes as previous bottles; tart lemon and green apple, lots of mineral. Will be picking up more. (1815 views)
 Tasted by Outplaying on 2/26/2012: Similar to previous bottles: crisp, lemony citrus, minerals. Enjoyed it. (1689 views)
 Tasted by Outplaying on 11/6/2011: Similar impression as with the last bottle. Crisp, lemon and citrus with nice minerality. Pretty nice. (2121 views)
 Tasted by wynnewood500 on 11/6/2011: Delightfully refreshing! (2309 views)
 Tasted by pmk on 9/5/2011 & rated 90 points: citrus forward, with definitie myer lemon finish, nicely balanced , light bodied and straw colored, distinctive. Great with sauteed halibut kabobs. (2303 views)
 Tasted by Pknut on 8/25/2011: The oak was much stronger in this bottle than in the first bottle in June. That bottle was much more integrated, and the oak took a backseat to the lemon notes and minerals. This most recent bottle showed some overt coarse wood. It mellowed out by the third night, whereupon the wine was easier to drink, showing a somewhat simple, lemony palate. Good, not great. (2262 views)
 Tasted by wineglas on 8/7/2011 & rated 90 points: Minneapolis Does a Blind Tasting Part 2 (Tracy's House): Showing nice right now with spice, lemons, minerals and orange. Medium finish and balanced. (2717 views)
 Tasted by rocknroller on 8/6/2011 & rated 88 points: Minneapolis Wine Club - Blind Tasting (Tracy's): Pale gold color. Nose is light, with some mineral, mild oak, apple, some pear, and a touch of spice. The palate has medium light body and is consistent. Nice wine. 88+pts. (2705 views)
 Tasted by joshbryer on 8/1/2011: No formal notes, drank off the list. This was pretty well put together, nose was nice, I recall floral scents and minerals and some sappy fruits. Similar on the palate with balanced acidity, good chalky fruit, decent length. Nothing special but admirable for the level and obviously striving to over achieve. (2330 views)
 Tasted by sleepyhaus on 7/7/2011: Delicious. Perhaps not quite as pure as 2007, nor as sharply acid, but lovely none the less. Lemon and mineral water and yes, a little oak which helps flesh out a bit of cream, but in the most delicately supporting sense, never overbearing. I drink this wine and I think how happy I am with this level of white burg at this price rather than playing roulette with aging the expensive wines. This delivers so much for such a reasonable price. I will probably re-up with the 2008, being skeptical of 2009 with its warm year reputation. (2481 views)
 Tasted by Pknut on 6/14/2011: Pretty darn tasty. Palate is rainwater pure with a squirt of lemon. On the second night, much longer on the palate, the lemon is stronger and there are also nuances of grapefruit and minerals. The oak is also peeking out, in a good way, imparting some textural interest to the palate, and the acidity provides nice energy. Should have bought more than a six pack. Easy to drink. (2589 views)
 Tasted by Outplaying on 6/12/2011: Chappellet Vertical 2000-2008 (The Twelves, West Grove PA): Citrus with a healthy dose of mineral. Crisp with just a touch of vanilla. A great pairing with the scallop appetizer. I liked this quite a bit. (2992 views)
 Tasted by wineretriever on 5/18/2011 & rated 88 points: Nice wine. Lemon zest, almost Napa Sauv Blanc like, but then that tiny bit of oak rounds it out. I didn't buy it, so it tasted even better. Had over two days, and shared with 5 others, and everyone enjoyed. (2773 views)
 Tasted by bin905 on 5/18/2011 & rated 90 points: Refreshing, crisp, green apple, grapefruit and mineral flavors. (2561 views)
 Tasted by wynnewood500 on 2/18/2011: Crisp clean flavors. Did not get the citrus that others have noted. (3093 views)
 Tasted by Beavis77 on 12/24/2010: Surprisingly intense nose for Chardonnay. Stone fruits, apples and pineapple citrus aromas burst from the glass.
The palate tastes like a fruit salad of slightly unripe peaches and nectarines dashed with some lemon juice. Smoothed out with just a dash of oak.
This wine is delicious. It's a reminder of how Chardonnay can be fun and so drinkable. (3548 views)
 Tasted by smkl123 on 9/30/2010 & rated 85 points: oddly vegetal nose, excessively acidic. Some mineral flavor, but limited at best. Mediocre at best. Not the strongest showing of a Montagny premier. (3298 views)
 Tasted by bin905 on 8/17/2010 & rated 89 points: Crisp green apple and lemon flavors with just a hint of oak and vanilla. (3435 views)

Jean-Marc Boillot Producer Website

En 1998, le domaine s’est étendu dans le Languedoc-Roussillon, où il produit une gamme de Vins de Pays d’Oc. Le Domaine est situé en zone d’appellations Pic Saint Loup, Coteau du Languedoc entre la Mer Méditerranée et les Cévennes.
Le vignoble est inséré dans un paysage de falaises calcaires et de garrigues.
Les sols sont argilo-calcaires, caillouteux, filtrants. Les écarts de températures diurnes et nocturnes favorisent l’élaboration de vins d’une grande finesse.

Burgundy

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.
