France- Chablis

 

Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Montmains Chablis Premier Cru 2015 750ML ($49.95) $39 pre-arrival special

Neal Martin-Vinous 91 points “The 2015 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is showing more oakiness on the nose than its peers, though the oak is neatly entwined with the tropical-tinged fruit. The palate has the fatness and weight you anticipate from a 2015 Chablis, if perhaps a little less acidity compared to other Montmains. A touch of orange zest and mandarin furnishes the satisfying finish. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.”

Marc Colin: New Vintage Arriving
Beaune’s Best kept secret

Fourrier BottlesDomaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2009 750ML ($179.95) $149 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni 89+ points “The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny is delicate and a touch ethereal. Crushed flowers and red berries are among the aromas and flavors that emerge from this feminine, delicate wine. The Chambolle is open and totally expressive, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2024.”
Burghound 88-91 points “An ultra elegant, airy and cool red berry fruit nose that is very Chambolle in character leads to pure, detailed and mineral-inflected flavors that possess plenty of verve on the racy and delicious finish.… Read the rest
