1997 Brocard Jean-Marc, Chablis Montée de la TonnerreNov. 2003
Lighter yellow colour compared to Faiveley’s Montagny. Nose starts with a waft of toasty oak, replaced by toasty bread and some higher floral tones. Much fatter though not quite as dense on the mid-palate. Good acidity with much more dimension on the palate and the finish. This is very good and still very primary
1996 Verget, Chablis Montée de la TonnerreFeb. 2003
Medium toast oak and a hint of something green on the nose – lime I think, gradually becomes buttery and honied. The palate is powerful and rich, showing very good acidity, just a little butter and very long. Despite just a trace of bitterness on the finish I think this is excellent wine, though the oak blurs the ‘sense of place’ for me.
