  • There were 2 magnums in our LWS, we were buying one when our wine guy said that he thought something was wrong with one of the bottles and wanted to make sure we were getting the good one, then he said 'Just take this one too and see what you think'. We could see that bottle was definitely darker in color.. and when we opened it, there was definitely something wrong with it. Dark gold in color and completely pre-moxed. Phew! We opened the '08 Grand Cru for comparison and had a mini wine tasting lesson on Mother's Day. 'This is what it should taste like, this is what it shouldn't taste like'

  • Possibly a flawed bottle? Not obviously oxidiized, but seems flat, short, and lacking acidity. Didn't develop at all.

  • Deep gold optic, a little rich in the palate, starts off interesting but with time in the glass, a hint of premix on the nose. Second glass is fresher but still not great, I'll leave my other bottles a while longer, and cross my fingers

  • Very distinctive flavors that are just great w/seafood platter; super, tangy and lingering length. That said, has a clear hint of premox on the top of my palate after all the other flavors disappear. Anyone else notice this?

  • Consumed before Grand-Echezeaux with homemade Gravalax. Amazing match of food and wine.
    Chablis deep golden color but no sign of premox.

    Tasting notes similar to last bottle 3/14.

    Excellent rich GC Chablis.

    (BROCARD Chablis LES CLOS) Les Clos #2

    Dear Friends,

    The Chablis Les Clos offer last week spurred a myriad of 2007 Les Clos requests but most of the material made from the vineyard in 2007 has already sold through or been allocated - there's just not a lot of wine to begin with. I've been trying to gain access to a parcel of this wine for a few months and I finally have one directly from the source.

    Please keep in mind the rarity of the vineyard but, with that in mind, Brocard's Les Clos may be the single finest value in top-tier Grand Cru white Burgundy in the 2007 vintage - enough said. If you are into the finest tactile and nervous examples that cut through the chaff with a stalactite of extract, verve and the mysterious yin-yang of masculine/feminine, this is your wine:

    This wine has become one of the most difficult to find in 2007 Chablis - we cannot get a second parcel. If we run out, you may want to check with Premier Cru to see if they have any left at $55.

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for outstanding typicity and value for the highest end:

    2007 Brocard Chablis "Les Clos" Grand Cru (BH93-96)
    Thank you,
