Maison Champy (Domaine Champy)

Meursault Chardonnay 2017

Rich style from a vintage made for whites! Champagne beurre Blanc, grilled pineapple, lemon panna cotta, brioche soaked in olive oil, magnolia, honeysuckle, yuzu, mirin, and noshi pear give it a Japanese aspect; ginkgo follows mold. Creamy mouthfeel kept honest by nice acid and lime padding with pith the pile lining. Lemon oil, lemon panna cotta and beurre blanc soaked brioche complete the picture from a stellar wine!

Sainte Céline Chablis Chardonnay 2021

Merely good #chablis - still delicious with dried lemon, crushed oyster shell nose, distinctive precise Chablisienne acidity, atypically smells like some neutral oak and resultant spice on the finish versus my QPR benchmark Kirkland Signature Premier Cru but solid #bourgogneblanc nonetheless. — 8 months ago


Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2019

Cherry blossom, lemon zest, whiff of powder, lime pith candied grapefruit nose. Lemon tart, lemon verbena and lemongrass emerge from warm lemon depths. Chalky and precise, this producer delivers a very pointed and yet complex offering evoking salivation and reverberating with cool herbaceous undertones.

Les Lys Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2007

2007 Lime, lime pith and lemon peel hold strong despite age. Lemon madeleines, orange oil, tangerine pith, lemongrass, evergreen. Orange peel, lemon oil and lemongrass forefront, while lime neutralizes to background color green olive swims in the lime, chamomile, kefir lime, grape leaf, crystalline salinity. Bright and ripe after 15 years!

I saw that! 2006 was heading downhill, but 2007 was stunning

Domaine des Terres Gentilles

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2021

Drink this one too cold and it will fall flat. Let it warm up in the glass closer to 60° to 65°F and it comes alive. Interestingly not a very expressive nose at all, some muted lemon, orchard fruit notes. On the palate it is delicious with mouthwatering acidity, subtle lemon, beeswax, lanolin and some nicely integrated spicy notes on the finish from new oak. ~$11 #costcowine - seems like you’re only giving up aromatics at a daily drinker #bourgogneblanc price. — 4 months ago

Domaine Vincent et Francois Jouard

Vieilles Vignes Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2019

Exquisite lemon-lime interlace couched in pith exemplifies the stated, but somehow simultaneously highlights a rounder, olive-floral, cherry and pear blossom otherness. Rich palate drives an olive and lemon oil union straight into an interesting baked lemon flattening with bright acid dichotomy. Incredible depth and infinite layers of stunning complexity. Needs many more years, but wow.

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey.

Au Bout du Monde Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Chardonnay 2020

Sun baked lemon, toasted sesame, light cap smoke, lime pith, lemon zest and dried sunflower. Tertiary smells of mown dry grasses and hibiscus. Fresh lemon juice soaked white gooseberry zaps the palate into salivation even as the gunpowder alights. Lime pith honestly reflects the nose and lemon oils persist. Puréed green mango, and chive butter droplet peer just detectable.

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2018

The smoke hasn’t cleared on this battle worn soldier. Really strong sense of gun powder! Volatilize, and peeks of lime pith or lemon verbena squeeze through the cracks like light in your lashes, revealing pepper and pecan shell, black mushroom spores and elm, with cigar sweetness and black lime on a smoky battlefield. Palate is lime pith and zest and oil and candied lime sparkles floating down a lemon juice river, with thick, thick lemon pith banks. Kind of a gangly age here, but showing depth and intensity. Need to see this one when it matures, sculpted like an Olympian.

Cave de Lugny

Vieille Réserve Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay 2018

Plenty of crushed oyster shell, hints of lemon oil and yellow orchard fruit on the nose. Nice interplay between creamy palate texture and acidity, intriguing zippy white pepper on mid-palate, pleasantly bitter lemon pith on the finish. Complex #mâcon #bourgogneblanc . — a year ago
