weekend wines – week 29 2018

23.7.2018billn

A small but perfectly formed selection of whites:

2014 Clotilde Davenne, Chablis Blanchots
Ouch! What a wine! Direct, grapefruit fresh, intense – this wine just begs me to keep taking another sip – what a great wine. I have to scold myself and slow-down – that was 2 glasses in only ten minutes, I’m having to force myself to slow down! – time to chill! Great wine…
Rebuy – Yes

Dinner at Le Soufflot brought out the 2015 Meursault Narvaux from PYCM, followed by the 2015 Meursault Meix sous Château from Jean-Philippe Fichet. Two excellent wines – both showing a little oak, both excellent, but the Fichet had just a little more crisp drive and purity – it was my favourite – though I’m splitting hairs with that verdict as both were top and both easy wines to say Rebuy – Yes. Great value drinking for a restaurant – €60 and €65 respectively – prices that compare very reasonably to retail offers…
