2004 Fevre Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume
1997 Guigal Cote-Rotie Brune et Blonde
The Fevre was everything I love about Chablis: pure, racy, loads of minerality. A classy, elegant wine. Fantastic! Why wait, drink up.
The Cote-Rotie was one of the finest reds I have had in a while. Beautiful nose, and a finish with nice, subtle bacony/gamey tones. These tones on the finish faded as the wine opened up. Killer. It’s easy to bag on Guigal because they make like 10 billion bottles a year. But between this and the 2003 Crozes-Hermitage (a kick-ass value and one for the cellar), color me impressed.
