weekend wines – week 37 2018

Update 20.9.2018(19.9.2018)billn

Some 2018s in the mix which, as previously noted, will be written up in a 20-years-on report – but other good stuff too.

Another bottle of the 2017 Julien Brocard, Chablis Boissoneuse this wine is simply too good – that’s most of my case already gone – I won’t even visit to officially taste it until January – what a mess I am! Then what to say about the 2012 Faiveley, Corton-Charlemagne? Directly a wine of impact, clarity, density and an oozing and persistent finish – oof! With time in the glass there’s a twist of firework-style reduction that develops to augment the mineral weight of finishing flavour. I still have a preference for the domaine’s 2014 – mainly for its extra twist of freshness – but I’m not ashamed in any way to have bought this one – how long can I keep my hands of the others? Only time will tell…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
