    Default Chablis 1997 Dom Chantemerle

    Hello,
    With my version of Moules mariniere:
    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
