Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1983

Deep gold color. Notes of apricot, creme brulee, lemon and marzipan, and a little butterscotch. In the decanter this looks golden, but in the glass it looks much younger. My last experience with this wine ended in a TN that said to drink within 2 hours of opening. Today, that was true. Until it wasn't. In hours 4-6, this exploded with excitement and changed dramatically. The old butterscotch and apricot notes disappeared; the acidity powered up; and the lemon and marzipan notes along with wet river stone and tan spice were amplified. Just when you think it was done, it pulled you back in...! — 9 days ago

How unreal to enjoy a wine made almost three decades ago.

Roederer Estate

Estate Bottled Anderson Valley Brut Rosé Blend

Tried a new batch. Roederer Estate sparkling wines are crisp & fresh reflecting the cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley, home to estate's 600 acres of vineyards. Blend of 60% Pinot Noir & 40% Chardonnay. Light salmon color, good flow of bubbles, firm mousse, aromas of berry fruits and biscuit notes. On the palate flavors of strawberry, ripe apple and peach with a dash of pepper spice. Long finish, lively acidity ending a tad creamy with toasty yeasty tones. Very Nice! — 23 days ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2013

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again.
(Notes this year were avoided, but scores are honest.)

L'Ermitage Brut Anderson Valley Chardonnay Blend 2013

Tried again, aged well! Founded in 1982, Roederer Estate sparkling wines reflect the cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. Roederer adds oak-aged reserve wines to all their blends to create complex, dry and harmonious sparkling wines. Fine bubbles, nice firm mousse with aromas of toasty fruit, blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir. On the palate flavors of ripe apple and nutty ripe pear & biscuit notes, great mouthfeel. Long finish ending with creamy nutty mineral and yeasty notes. Smooth and crisp! Nice! — 23 days ago

Fourchaume Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Выпито 09.10.21 с семьей Савваса и Дашей в рыбной таверне Cursaros. Отмечали рождение второй внучки Савваса. После двух бутылок шампанского Lois Roederer это премьер курю Шабли было очень мягким и нежным. Зашло пташечкой. — 15 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Hermitage Syrah 1983

Reddish tawny. Youthful nose. Notes of black currants, blackberries, herbs and spices and some menthol. Silky in the mouth, although at first it comes off as delicate. With more air, some spice and white pepper notes develop, and this goes full on Chave and Hermitage power on you... Not bad for Syrah that's pushing 40 years in age! — 9 days ago

@Mike Saviage, is this a Kermit import, or the old east coast distributor (Warren S??) — asking because I think I have 1-2 remaining bottles of this purchased back when I lived in NYC (so not Kermit import as some of my later 1980s bottles are). Thanks.

@Doug Powers Hey Doug. Not KL. It was an HDH acquisition awhile ago, with the bottles showing the importer as Heritage Wines out of Niles IL.
