A ‘northern Burgundy night! A few ‘house’ Chablis to start the night – because we were 4!
2010 Benoît Cantin, Irancy
‘Only the standard Irancy, but a magnum! Of-course, a cork that broke in two!
Medium colour – just! The nose has a small vibration of fruit and a herby note – rosemary – interesting and quite inviting. Nice and freshly mouth-filling, I like the energy here. Not über-concentrated, more of an airy style to this, but this is tasty, easy to appreciate wine: a magnum of not so great wine tends to hang around, but this was a bottle that emptied quite quickly for its size. A similar level to a very good Bourgogne here.
Rebuy – Yes

Gosh, he is improving! We stayed at the domaine nearly 20 years ago! Nice note Bill. 😀😀
Cantin’s 2010’s were the first I bought at the domaine and I was impressed. My last bottle of Palotte 2010 was drunk last year and was very good. Must buy some magnums on my next visit.
Magnums I love. Still, in lockdown times, the excuses to open them are shrunken 🙁
What is your opinion of the 2018 William Fevre Chablis vs the 2017 you drank?
I didn’t write anything because you will find notes for both, probably, too many times on the site already. But, the 2018 is currently the more structural, the 2017 the more ready – but both are equally delicious and properly Chablis – easy 🙂
