Community Tasting Notes 2

    November 6, 2022 - C+K's housewarming party (Chicago, IL): Disgorged January 2022. A huge whiff here. This wine was almost universally disliked today. The fruit was candied and clearly very sweet, but at the same time, the acidity didn't seem to integrate at all, leading to an unpleasant green sensation as well. Unbalanced and herbal, but overripe and candied at the same time, this was a pretty confounding wine. Hopefully this was a flawed bottle.

    May 27, 2022 - Tasting with Aurelien Laherte of Laherte Freres (At the winery in Chavot): Had to add to the database so this is an early look at the wine. Disgorged December 2021. 100% Chardonnay grown on chalk with a few grams of dosage. The vintage shows here, the sun really coming through it. The chalk helps add freshness to lift the more fruit-centric aspect of the wine. Lemon, yellow apple, grapefruit with a richer expression but enough spine to balance it out.
