Thursday, February 6, 2014 - Westchester Wine School Premium Burgundy Tasting (Mamaroneck, NY): Drank at WWS blind tasting vs. Martenot Meursault Les Perrieres. The chablis was a pale straw color, not much gold in the glass. Nose reminded me of the sea shore & oysters. Nice minerality here, wet stones with a lot of (too much) wood. This wine was overoaked, which obscured the other elements of the wine. Decent acidity, & I liked the mineral quality that showed thru but I just couldn't get past the oaky style of this wine. I much preferred the Meursault. A nice somewhat golden color. Generous nose of pineapples and honey. Some vanilla from the wine having obviously been aged in oak, with a slight mineral quality, along with a good, ripe fruit level. This wine was rounder, more full bodied, with more richness & ripe fruit than the chablis. Very nice mouthfeel, good complexity and length. Still youthful too so I see this wine getting even better with some bottle age. Very enjoyable.
