I think this might just be the first 2005 that I’ve opened at home…
2005 Joseph Drouhin, Laforet Bourgogne Chardonnay
Medium yellow. The nose is sweet and high-toned with green-skinned fruit and pear. Wow – this has very good texture for the appellation and super acidity to match. The flavours are a little ‘stoney’ and mineral. There is good mid-palate intensity and a reasonable finish too. This subtly oaked wine – it’s about texture rather than flavour – this is very impressive for its label and just a little Chablis in style. Bravo.
Rebuy – Yes
