Another poor showing. Thankfully the last bottle. No premox but very disjointed and angular.

My third bottle. Once again, a hauntingly perfect bottle of White Burgundy, with many years ahead. This created more excitement among my guests than an 05 DRC Montrachet which had to play second fiddle.

2005 Coche-Dury Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières

Chardonnay more

7/15/2015 - sjwshiraz wrote: NR

Coche Dury Meursault Perrieres 2005 - at Troisgros- a perfect match for rosettes of sashimi of Saint Pierre topped with Australian black truffle (the first time the restaurant has served these, normally they would not source from so far away but felt the quality to be superlative). All the Coche 2005s that I've had have all been hors classe, but this is possibly better than his Corton Charlemagne. Perhaps best to try side by side to confirm ! My favourite Coche vintage I think.

Coche Dury Corton Charlemagne 2006 and 1999 - one of the highest highs, and one of the lowest lows of the holiday. An impossibly beautiful 1999, still with years ahead of it. The 2006 was extremely advanced - my first poxed Coche - what a tragedy

2010 Claudine Petitjean Montrachet

Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay more

5/21/2015 - sjwshiraz wrote: NR

Drunk at LQV HK. An ethereal Montrachet, in the lighter Puligny style. The smallest producer with only 5 ares, the wine is made by Lamy Pillot. An extremely pretty nose of white flowers, citrus and chalk. The wine was medium weight for a Montrachet but had enormous length. Worth seeking out

Another astonishing bottle. Even at 98 points, Meadows, I think, is conservative ! Simply put, one of the 2 or 3 most breathtaking White Burgundies I've ever had

2007 Domaine Dublère Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses

Chardonnay more

5/9/2015 - sjwshiraz wrote: NR

Very tropical, with an almost Jurancon-like tang to it. I would never guess this as a Chablis, however it is an intriguing glass of wine, but not something I'd return to quickly

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay more

2/16/2015 - sjwshiraz Likes this wine: 100 points

I'd be surprised if White Burgundy can get better than this. For me, this ranks alongside 1982 Ramonet Montrachet and 1996 Coche CC as the great WB I've drunk. The precision is laser like, I can't remember drinking a more mineral laden wine. Each time I revisited the glass over the evening it seemed to add another dimension. Extraordinarily expensive but worth every penny !
