This is fantastic 1er Cru Chablis grown on precious Kimmeridgian soil facing Les Blanchots, west of Montée de Tonnerre from one of the most underrated spots in Burgundy. It’s textbook Chablis that slowly unveils incredible depth and sophistication in the glass. One of those rare wines that’s different with almost every passing sip – especially as it warms a bit. Consequently, there’s a myriad of flavors that dart to and fro: pineapple, grapefruit, fresh mint, wildflower, wet stone, apple…all delightful and with that famous Chablis cut.
It’s no wonder this is a hot little ticket amongst some of NYC’s best restaurants; this is a killer wine at a great price. The 2020 Petit Chablis has an attractive nose of citrus rind, white flowers, and wet stone. In the palate, the wine is racy and mineral with just a touch of salinity. The hallmark of the great 2020s will be tension and length and Sébastien’s little wine has both in spades. The acidic/mineral cut will make this fantastic at the table and a great candidate for short term aging.
Lydia’s 2020 HCN is drop dead gorgeous– old-school Red Burgundy with fine aromatics, crunchy, juicy fruit and a sharp vibrancy that makes it just sing with food. Made from super old vines and a low yield with no new oak in the aging process, the wine is a joy to drink– a bowl full of berries on the nose, high-toned, racy fruit that has been touched by a limestone mineral component in the mid-palate with the structure and length that has become the hallmark of Cornu-Camus wines. It’s drinking fantastically now and should be all the way thru 2030.
In Burgundy’s outraegous 2019 vintage, this is one of the bottles I’m recommending people load up on. It’s gorgeous. Don’t just take my word for it, this is what The Wine Advocate had to say about the wine: “The 2019 Givry Rouge is already hard to resist, bursting with aromas of sweet berries and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, lively and charming, with melting tannins and juicy acids, it has turned out beautifully.”
92 Points, Decanter
The newly released 2020 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin is a knockout and easily one of the best wines I’ve had from this property. It’s not just me saying it either. The always stingy Decanter Magazine absolutely loved the wine calling it the “Best Saint Martin I’ve had” on their way to giving it a big time 92-point score. They also described it perfectly: “Classy, understated style of Chablis with a great balance between ripeness of fruit and powerful acidity.”
Marie Jacqueson’s best red is a 1er cru from the vineyard Préaux. The vines are old here, averaging almost 50 years in age. The soil is a classic mix of clay and limestone providing for soaring aromatics of strawberry, black cherry, cinnamon and roses. The fruit is almost crunchy; incredibly fresh, juicy, really flat-out delicious. Those limestone soils gives the wine great length, with a mineral finish that goes a mile. Great now, great in 10 years, and qualitatively worth double the price. There are only 78 bottles available this year. Then we wait again!
