Brocard, Jean-Marc 2021 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

"Sitting to the right of the Grands Crus valley, the Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre is without a doubt the most complete of the Premiers Crus: it concentrates minerality, a floral touch and richness into a great vin de garde… it’s for keeping" says JM Brocard. "An abundance of Chablis character suffuses the pretty, even elegant and quite floral nose that includes notes of mineral reduction, iodine, seaweed and apple. The sleek, intense and utterly delicious middleweight flavors possess fine cut and minerality on the finish. Outstanding" says Burghound...

Brocard, Jean-Marc 2022 Chablis Vieilles Vignes Sainte-Claire

This large estate began conversion to organic and biodynamic farming in 1997. While some parcels are now under Julien's name, the Sainte-Claire vineyard remains in the JM Brocard estate - the 2022 is quite racy and fine for a 2022. Harvest was done early in the morning, fermentation was with native yeasts. "The palate has a fine lick of salinity on the entry. With fine depth, this linear and taut Chablis will appeal to those seeking a more classic style in this warmer vintage. Excellent." Neal Martin Vinous

Champs de l'Abbaye 2022 Cote Chalonnaise Blanc "Les Amourettes"

The Champs de l'Abbaye "Les Amourettes" is a lovely Chardonnay from limestone terroir in Aluze, next to Mercurey. Notes of ripe yellow apple and pear waft from the glass with juicy tropical fruit and lemon confit on the round palate. Medium to full bodied despite it's lithe 12.5% abv, it would lend itself to fuller white meat, fish dishes and cream sauces such as blanquette de veau, monkfish a l'oseille and roasted pork belly.

Champs de l'Abbaye 2021 Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Nature

The scintillating Champs de l'Abbaye Cremant de Bourgogne is 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay, but nature - zero dosage, from organic grapes grown in the Côte Chalonnaise near Mercurey. This is an excellent Champagne-alternative and a great value. Aromas of freshly baked brioche, zesty citrus, and white flowers lift from the glass. The palate is very dry and densely mineral  with flavors of ripe pear, hints of baking spice, and stony acidity. A delicious, food-friendly bottle for any occasion. A Crémant for an aperitif, or with oysters from Brittany...

Champs de l'Abbaye 2022 Rully Les Cailloux

The Hasard's have a small parcel of 40 year-old vines in Rully on clay and limestone soils. The 2022 is showing stunning elegance in its youth, with seductive aromas of dried apricots, flint, wild honeysuckle and integrated hints of new oak. The palate is charged with flavors of pear, citrus, and quince with an intense mineral-laden acidirty, balancing the lovely ripeness of the 2022 vintage. The finish is long and remarkably stony. Drink now with shell fish, comté cheese, or roast chicken, or hold for 5-10 years for a mature experience.

Colin-Morey, Pierre-Yves 2011 Meursault Les Narvaux

The Narvaux vineyard is located above Genevrieres and Porusots; it is a very rocky hillside vineyard, and some sections of it seem to have been blasted from the bare rock. This is another great and accessible village level wine from PYCM, with very intense fruit aromas, good mouthweight and an intense finish — a fantastic bottle. There are many great producers of Narvaux, notably Domaine D'Avenay and Jean Marc Roulot.  Their Meursault Narvaux cost considerably more than that of Pierre Yves Colin Morey. JBT

Domaine de l'Enclos 2022 Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

From a parcel of 40 year-old vines, this is lovely, satisfying Chablis, with ripe yellow fruit in the attack and mid-palate and forceful minerality in the finish. This has more cut and brightness than the very good 2020, with lovely citrus and orchard fruits. This is delicious now but is also a good candidate for mid-term aging (the 2016, backward upon release, grew into a beautiful swan with five years in the bottle).

Domaine de l'Enclos 2022 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu

From .75 hectares of organically farmed vines dating from 1995 high on the hillside on the western end of the climat (per Jasper Morris). Fermented in wood with native yeasts without batonnage and bottled with minimal sulfur. The ripe and vibrant 2022 Mont de Milieu is perfumed , yellow-fruited, generous, and pretty on the nose. There's a dynamic interplay between the ripe citrus and stone fruit flavors and the snappy oyster shell saltiness on the brisk, energetic palate with a long, lingering succulent finish. Terrific now,  but certainly a good candidate for mid-term aging

From .57 hectares of organically farmed vines dating to 1992.

This has grand cru class and is a delicious Vaudésir. Decant now or cellar for 5-7 years and beyond. Highly recommended.

Guillemot-Michel NV Vin de France Le Feu et La Glace

Our friends at Guillemot-Michel lost most of their 2021 harvest to frost, but they were able to buy organic Chardonnay and Gamay from friends to make this rather vivacious sparkling wine Le Feu et La Glace (Fire and Ice). The wine shows a lovely bright pink color and fresh aromas of cherry and raspberry fruit, blood orange and spice. The palate is fresh and bright with a firm bead an sappy red currant and cherry fruit with a hint of sweetness over the refreshing acidity. Quite delicious and perfect for a party, especially with charcuterie and cheeses.

Perrin, Céline 2022 Bourgogne Aligoté

The Perrin Bourgogne Aligoté comes from vines that are over 80 years-old, thus a bit more dense and full-bodied than most Aligotés. This is an Aligoté that will reward patience and a decant. Tight and compact upon opening, this blossomed with air, yielding fresh lemon, daffodil and crisp yellow apple all swirling around a profoundly mineral core. I was shocked how stony this wine felt at the four hour mark. Quite serious and fine, especially for the price. "An aperitif wine par excellence, it becomes the famous Kir when combined with crème de cassis. It goes perfectly with grilled fish and goat cheeses. More simply, it goes well with salads, tabbouleh, steamed vegetables. It is also a faithful companion to Burgundy gougères, snails and of course jambon persillé."

Perrin, Céline 2022 Bourgogne Blanc

The Céline Perrin Bourgogne Blanc hails from the thin stony soils of Ladoix. The wine show s a very pale gold color and subtle aromas of apple, pear, dried herbs (mint) and a bit of oak. The palate is lean and dense showing the limestone terroir, with a rather strong saline minerality with white fruit and citrus flavors, finishing bone-dry with stone and citrus in the long finish. Not a fruit-bomb, serve this glass of earth with grilled or broiled fish - decant or open in advance if possible.

Perrin, Céline 2022 Ladoix "Sur les Vris"

The Perrin Ladoix "Sur les Vris" is an east-facing slope in the north part of Ladoix abutting ancient quarries and just below the 1er Cru "Les Grechons." The wine shows a gold or light straw color, with aromas of ripe white and yellow fruits, with earth, citrus and floral notes and a touch of oak. The palate has nice weight and density with pear and peach fruit balanced by firm acids and mineral flavors with a touch spice and bitter lemon in the long finish. "It is a wine whose breadth and weight are balanced by its lovely freshness," say the Perrins. Please decant or open in advance if drinking now, best 2025 - 2030. It is very suitable as an aperitif, but also with salads, soups, fish, white meats. For cheeses, white Ladoix goes very well with blue, goat’s cheese, Gruyères…

Perrin, Céline 2022 Ladoix 1er Cru "Les Gréchons"

The Perrin Ladoix 1er Cru "Les Grechons" is just to the northeast of the Grand Cru Corton-Mourottes. The slope is covered with limestone scree and pebbles - tailings from ancient limestone quarries. There is so little white Ladoix kicking around, I had no reference point. But this was lovely, showing white peach and lime curd, with some spiciness and toasted almond notes. Good mineral density in the finish here, this is good now but will benefit from a few years in the cellar. This wine will be perfect with the most delicate dishes such as pan-fried foie gras, scallops...

Perrin, Céline 2022 Meursault "Sous la Velle"

The Céline Perrin 2022 Meursault "Sous la Velle" is from a large parcel just south of the village, giving wines that tend to be quite round and full-bodied, ideal for drinking young. This is by no means flabby or fat though, with balanced acidity and a mineral streak that brings some of the toasty, subtly creamy characteristics into focus. A pale gold in the glass, there are aromas of fresh orchard and citrus fruit with some delicate white flowers and toasted almonds, with a texture that seems to melt on the tongue. The palate is surprisingly tensile with  a mineral core, wood tannins and flavors of apples and citrus. It strikes a great balance between freshness and richness, delicious now but with potential to evolve nicely over the next few years. A phenomenal value for Meursault!

Rateau 2022 Beaune Clos des Mariages Blanc

Located toward the bottom of the slope beneath Beaune Grèves and adjacent to Les Cents Vignes, Clos des Mariages is a mix of young and very old vines planted in clay and limestone soils. The lovely 2022 Blanc shows high-toned aromas of lime-flower, melon, pear, wet stone and honeysuckle. The palate is light and silky with pear, apple and citrus flavors with chalky minerals and herbal notes in the refreshing finish. Superb in 2022, the wine combines lush, lovely fruit with bright acidity and a real mineral presence. Delicious now, but in 5 - 10 years it will be quite special.  David Lillie

Rateau 2022 Cote de Beaune La Grande Chatelaine

About a kilometer or two northwest of the Beaune 1er Crus, La Grande Chatelaine is a cooler site with soils comprised of clay over limestone. The 2022 Clos de la Grande Chatelain is 90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Blanc and Pinot Beurot. This is a great vintage for the Grande Chatelaine - it's classy and elegant wine with fresh cool-toned aromatics of white flowers,  nectarine, rainwater,  and pear skin. The medium-bodied palate is a little warmer toned offering flavors of nectarine, white peach, and crushed herb with a fairly savory finish. Beautiful wine, and a very elegant pairing with any elegant seafood or white meat preparation.

Rateau 2022 Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blanc Chardonnay

Jean-Claude Rateau makes lovely Biodynamic wines in the Hautes-Côtes-de-Beaune in his east-facing vineyard of clay/limestone and marne soils.  Quite racy and bright even in the ripe 2022 vintage, the wine shows lovely aromas of lemon, almond, stone, spiced pear and apple. The palate is rounder and more ripe than usual, but perfectly balanced with pear, citrus and stone flavors and terrific length. The antithesis of fat, oaky Chardonnays, this food friendly wine will accompany everything from oysters and grilled seafood to roast chicken and mild cheeses. Delicious now or cellar for 5 to 8 years. This is a real Chardonnay of terroir and a great value!  David Lillie

Texier (Vignenvie) 2022 Vin de France Calico

(Arrives Wed 2/21) Texier "Vignenvie" Calico comes from a one hectare parcel in Charnay co-planted with Muscat d’Alexandrie, Muscat Petit Grain, Muscat Ottonnel, Chasselas Blanc, Chasselas Gris and Pinot Gris. The Vignenvie project is quite unique: many inhabitants of the small village of Charnay work this land together as a community. Eric Texier then vinifies the wines and redistributes it to the workers. The work is heavily inspired by the agricultural philosophy of Masanobu Fukuoka. The 2022 offers a lovely combination of floral and stone fruit notes, suggesting the aromatic varieties with lychee and white flowers, but also subtle tangerine and citrus fruits. On the palate, the acidity is lively but balanced and not too sharp, with white apricot and fresh stones. The finish brings everything together and adds fresh-cut herbs and orchard fruit notes. A jovial and thirst-quenching wine with life-affirming energy! Seems like Eric hasn't given up on making no sulfur wines, at least he's really good at it! 30 minutes open and it's just getting better....

Vignes du Maynes 2020 Vin de France Maxceration of Chardonnay

Max has been an integral part of the Vignes du Maynes team for many years now. His rustic red beard can be spotted from many meters away, and his jovial air matches or at least comes very close to the level of the indefatigable Julian Guillot. First gracing the label of Megamix, a co-ferment of red and white grapes that was on the shelf last year (and will likely return later this year), Max's newest cameo is on the label for this skin contact wine, one of the first (if not THE first) to be released from the estate. Our assumption is that this was all Max's idea, and it does not seem like photoshop was used for this label, which shows Max fully reclined in a vat of grapes. Julien tells us that "the presence of beard hair does not alter its a quality in any way." All Chardonnay, with 13 days of maceration, and 22 months aging in foudre, this is a flavorful and aromatically intriguing skin contact ("orange") wine. Notes of lemon meringue, apple sauce and quince on the nose, and subtle orchard fruit on the palate. The wine has just arrived, which may explain why it is currently not a two-day wine (i.e. we recommend drinking it within 2-3 hours of opening). Whether or not it gains some stability after the voyage, at 10.5% it would be hard not to down the bottle in one sitting with a few friends.

Vignes du Maynes 2021 Mâcon-Cruzille Les Chassagnes 1.5L

The Vignes du Mayne "Les Chassagnes" is from massale-slection Chardonnay.  The walled vineyard (clos) was abandoned around 1880 after the phylloxera epidemic,  replanted  in 2005. The virgin soil is rich with humus from the forest that had grown on it. The very thin layer of soil (15 to 30 cm) is clay-limestone. The colluvial deposits of clay loam covering a layer of very calcareous and siliceous weathered limestone give the wines their minerality. Yield 20 hl/ha / Organic and biodynamic farming. Harvested by hand with no sorting because it is unnecessary / 12 hours of crushing and skin maceration before pressing / Fermentation in 600L demi-muids using natural yeasts, no SO2 / Matured on lees for 11 months without racking / Bottled in September with or without SO2 depending on the batches.

Vignes du Maynes 2022 Macon-Cruzille Au Quin Chateau

100% Chardonnay from young vines, certified Biodynamic, planted in on a parcel with 40% incline in Martailly-lès-Brancion (just north of Cruzille) on white marl and blue marl terroirs, similar to the soils of the Jura, while Cruzille is usually known for its limestone soils. Manual harvest, direct pressing, 8 months of aging in barrels, racking, bottled without fining or filtration. Like all of the whites from Vignes du Mayne, lees aging helps to give subtle roundness to the wine, while the mineral rich soils provide freshness and balance. Though suitable for aging over the next 3 years, this is in some ways the younger sibling to Les Chassagnes and Aragonite, and is in a lovely place for immediate drinking.

The 2022 is a fascinating  and very natural  Chardonnay, showing bright pale gold color and high-toned aromas of lemon zest, white peach, pear, almond and honeysuckle. The palate is dense and supple with vibrant white fruit, stone and almond flavors, finishing with citrus and minerals. This is a young wine that will benefit from aeration if drinking now, and will cellar for ten years. (Approx 30 mg/l  SO2.)
