2002 Colombier, Chablis FourchaumeNov. 2004
Good depth, though less width on the nose vs the village Chablis, good fruit though. Gives an impression of fat, but there’s a really obvious minerality. Good acidity. Like a greyhound this wine, no excess fat – really enjoyed.
2002 Colombier, ChablisNov. 2004
No wood used in production. Open high-toned nose with faint citrus. Good fat and surprising depth and length for the price. Perhaps I’d like a hint more acidity, but there’s good minerality and an even better price!
2000 Colombier, Chablis BougrosNov. 2004
Pale gold. This is nicely deep on the nose with honied hints of citrus. Better acidity than the two 2002’s tasted, but this wine majors on the mineral. Very very long, perhaps with a faint metallic edge. This is a wine to forget for a few years – super.
2001 Colombier, ChablisJul. 2004
Pale gold. The nose has good depth set against higher fruit notes. The palate showing medium density and good lemony acidity. Steely and nicely balanced – this seems very good value at ~12 Euro.
