2005 Maison Blanche, ChablisAug. 2007
Medium-pale yellow. The nose is wide, fresh and shows faint citrus hints – it’s a hit. The palate is very concentrated and plush for such a ‘lowly’ wine with almost good acidity – I would have liked just a little more – but a good-plus length. Base Chablis from this vintage can be incredibly successful and I have to say I’ve had (so far) more bulls-eyes from Chablis than the Côte de Beaune. An excellent potential
1997 Maison Blanche, Chablis VaudesirMar. 2004
Yellow colour. Minerally, lemon nose. Much fatter than J-M Boillot’s Puligny, but less mineral than the nose suggested. The acidity is excellent and there’s a trace of nuttyness. Long but no complexity. I’d say that this is still very young. Very good today, could become excellent in time.
