Default Chablis 1997 Dom Chantemerle

Hello,
With my version of Moules marinie
Color is surprisingly light considering the realtively high age.
Nose overflows with carambole, I find some very slight oxidative notes.
On palate, acidity is fairly restrained for a Chablis. There is a
minerality, even a saltiness. Very good and almost opulent body. To my mind,
this wine is at its apex and we will drink the remaineing bottles during the
next 12 months.
Excellent with shellfish.

Cheers

Nils

Nils, am I correct in thinking that this is a village-level Chablis? If
so, no surprise that it's mature, but a testament to Boudin's winemaking
that it has lasted this long and this well.

Hello Mark,

It would be interesting to discuss the Bourgogne classifications ... the
short answer is, yes, it is Chablis, without any additional classification.
New year´s Eve 2006 we opened, in succession, two Magnum Chablis De Vauroux
1986 which were, as far as I remember, excellent (it was a very long and
intellectually challenging New Year's Eve so I never made any notes), but
those were magnums so they age slower than a normal bottle. The oldest
Chablis I tasted was a 1975 Collin & Bourisset
http://groups.google.se/group/alt.fo...f47aa7f0684de1
but that must have been a special case.

It must also be admitted that I have a penchant for older wines.

Cheers

Nils
