This wine started very convincing, but some hours later the ripe acidity disappeared a bit, however two days later the scrap in the bottle showed again very balanced. Don't compare this wine with Burgundies. Every time I taste a different backbone, due to a more pronounced acidity. The style is more hefty, maybe less sophisticated, but the wine pleases the palette and is very pure. Drink the 2008 now!
JURA NIGHT (ENOTECA ROSSORUBINO TORINO): Maybe this bottle was a bit over-ripe and honeyed... not as perfect as the one I had before Christmas. This one lacked of acidity and mineral long finish. I did not cathc his Chablis-side, but anyway, always a masterpiece!!
Meno performante dell' ultimo assaggio natalizio.... un pò più maturo, mieloso e quasi avanti con gli anni.... Mi è mancato il suo lato "Chablissienne" e la sua complessità, però sempre un bianco meraviglioso!
Tasted blind (not I, but my friends) with the Les Grands Teppes. The Les Grands Teppes was the winner, although a bit chunky, the wine showed fatness, body and had a pure chardonnay nose and taste with just that little difference (the acidity/minerality) between this wine and e.g. a Corton-Charlemagne. The Les Chalasses was more reticent and therefore difficult to assess. With more aeration the wine showed more intensity and backbone; so maybe within one or two years this wine will grow. Both bottles decanted (from bottle to bottle) two hours before the tasting.
Hey man, this is funky!!! Popped and poured, classic smell of lightly oxidated stuff, I love this sulfur coming out....Reminds me of all great Valentini Trebbiano. It tells you that everything is alive inside!!
Now add to this salty freshness a buttery layer of a Batard-Montrachet.
An entry-level oxidatif-style, made by a master of a winemaker that Combines a richness creamy texture, bright acidity, saltyness sea shell, with light pear, iodine, lemon, fuji apple.
What about the long finish.... here we are again!! Cirtus, saltyness and acidity of a Chablis, with a layer of creamy-Batard-hazelnut
It is just impossible to stop pouring another glass, smiling like an idiot!!! I would drink Ganevat all life long!!!
Burgundy + Chablis = Jura ( at a ridiculous price)
