2004 Grossot Corinne et Jean-Pierre, ChablisJul. 2006
Pale lemon yellow colour. A little sea-shore, fresh-cut greenery and lemon on the nose. Lightweight but with clean, precise flavours and a sneaky late intensity – the finish falls-off quite quickly but this is a good value wine.
2003 Grossot Corinne et Jean-Pierre, Chablis Les ForneauxJul. 2006
Medium lemon yellow colour. Relatively fresh, some width, delicate and interesting. Density, indeed slightly unruly density – also not quite the freshness that I crave. But there’s dimension and power in spades, and the wine is obviously far too young. Needs 3 or 4 years in the cellar, but there’s more material than in many a grand cru and the finish lingers with a creamy edge. If there was just that edge more of acidity I’d be filling my cellar!
