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 Louis Michel & Fils

Montmain Chablis Premier Cru Chardonnay

Lemon smoke, pith and zested peel, green beans, wax bean, lime, pestelled chive, chunky seltzer. Speedy and clean palate shows lime and lemon citrus, underripe green pear, lime pith, chalky pink grapefruit, salinity, orchid stem. Great wine with plunging depth, spritely while well defined and deftly crafted. A joy.

Domaine Jean-François Quénard

Vaillons Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019

White gold glints over chatelaine. Pineapple peers through a steely mask, jasmine and magnolia softly breathe through winter’s nostrils. Meyer lemon suggestions turn zest and pith on the palate; key lime invoked. Grapefruit veins of pith peel back slowly to reveal lightning streaks of complex citruses, and squash blossom stem.

Domaine Moutard-Diligent

Bougros Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2014

Yellow amber to antique gold developing in this 8 year old beauty. Nose showing pineapple and baked lemon, green onion and lemon bread. Lemon pith opening on the palate with lime peel, lemon zest and briny cucumber. Kumquat sharpness, white grapefruit, bitter orange, kefir lime. Not cellared, so rapid age expected, still a lovely treat.

Les Lys Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2006

And now for a golden oldie! Borders on baked golden apple, poire William notes, green apple slices, and even green apple hard candy. Green pear in a pineapple wash, orange bread, pear tart, dinner roll with orange marmalade. Half-dried lemon juices spiral down pile of acid and minerality. Shows it’s age in all other ways, but acid remains unbroken. Baked crab apple, radish fringe, baked grapefruit but just browned, sour mandarins, lemon and lime piths pull it back to its sinew. Really amazing wine. Endless citrus finish.

Sainte Céline Mont De Milieu Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2019


I’m pleasantly surprised here. My sister-in-law bought this Leclerc and it’s delicious. On the nose a bit of reduction in the good way, kerosene, chalky soil salty aromas. On the palate pure juicy citrus and for me well balanced between ripe juicy fruit and zesty acidity. #chablis #premiercruchablis — 8 months ago

Montmain Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

2018 vintage. Lemon dough, green grape, lemon zest, gesso, marble chippings, smoky white mulberries, pink orchid, carnation and cherry blossom bouquet shows chive and crisp green pea, but also lemongrass. Big and juicy lemon, lime zest, green pear skin, white pepper, chive, lime pith, lime juice, green apple, and beet greens. Crisp, refreshing, refined.

Chablis Chardonnay 2017

Baked apple, custard, almond paste aromas - racy acidity, touch of spice on the finish. Lovely #chablis with a killer QPR for $15 from Costco. — a year ago
