 Tasted by maxima on 12/16/2013 & rated 87 points: Beau Chablis d'entrée de gamme, frais et digeste.
Belle minéralité même si un peu court et simple. (875 views)
 Tasted by Paul S on 1/28/2013 & rated 89 points: This is a terrific Chablis regionale, so much so that I actually thought it was a solid 1er Cru instead. Popped and poured over a Teochew meal at Mong Hing (celebrating E's birthday) it did take awhile to get going, showing a bit tight and reticent at first. With a bit of time and air though, it gave out a nice bouquet with dollops of sweet cream with a floral touch at the sides, ripe white fruit with a citrus undertone, and then tons of stony mineral aromas. The palate was a bit grumpy at first as well, with a tight, over-bright, almost tart note to it. There was also something rather faintly sulphuric about that palate, even though I ruled out SO2, given how much of a "natural wine" reputation Piuze is getting. Thankfully though, some half-an-hour after pouring, any odd notes faded away and the wine opened up nicely into very pure Chablis notes of lime and white fruit lined by lots of lovely, slighty saline minerality. Where the acidity came across strident and tart at first, it now resolved into a lovely mouthful of juicy, citrus freshness. While still a relatively simple wine, this really showed solid depth and grip for something of its level. I think there is more to come too - this will probably be best after another couple more years in the bottle. I would have no hesitation recommending this as a really good entry-level wine.

 Tasted by JOsgood on 12/27/2011: This is a great lower level Chablis and it definitely shines in a vintage like 2008. Crisp and vibrant with nice minerality. (1826 views)
 Tasted by the godfather on 12/27/2011: very solid juice (1767 views)
 Tasted by Zonk on 6/4/2011 & rated 89 points: Nice entry level chablis. Zesty minerality, lots of lemon, perhaps a bit of peach. (1816 views)
 Tasted by Erik12903 on 5/19/2010 & rated 88 points: Chablis tasting with Patrick Piuze: fine nose of grass, white flowers and wet stones. elegant and with a fantastic focus but still open and expressive. great freshness and nerve. (1822 views)
 Tasted by Dess123 on 3/4/2010 & rated 89 points: Bonne presence en bouche. Bonne acidite et aromes d'agrumes. (1359 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.

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

Jon Rimmerman: "2014 is a return to the titillating terroir punch that is only delivered in the 1er and Grand Cru vineyards that dot the slopes and hillsides of Chablis. The 2014 wines in most of Chablis are so reflective and elegantly mineral-drenched that its hard not to glug them straight away (Beaujolais had a mostly similar result in 2014 after 2012/2013 examples that were largely disappointing).

In Chablis, 2014 is the finest vintage since 2010 and it is somewhat of 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.

As more and more in Burgundy are trying to curtail the thickness in their wines (from heavy new wood/malo/stirring) in favor of more transparent and lithe structures (with equal levels of fascinating material and intrigue), it can be said that the material itself must stand the test of time, not the textural impression left by the winemaker. That does not mean all texture is lost - quite the opposite - but the texture is natural and 'of the vintage' not 'of the winemaker'."
