Chablis Grand cru 2010

I must admit that I am not really a big fan of Chablis. The village wines and premier cru's are good but seldom brilliant. Too many times I end up having a bottle of white Burgundy instead. So I was sceptical to this one I must say. But I am openminded so I was pleasantly surprised by this Grand cru from the biggest and probably best plot called "Les Clos". Medium yellow green colour. Quite a lovely nose with citrus, green apples, smoke and minerals. Great balanced full bodied taste with a long aftertaste. Chablis Grand cru 2010 Les Clos La Maison Romane Ca 45£  

Sancerre 2014

I met a friend at the local wine shop the other day and he gave me this one to try out. As the weather was "warm" and sunny  the wine was sampled the same day. Pale straw colour with a delightful smell of gooseberries, white flowers, citrus fruit and grapefruit. The wine is superdry like most Sancerre. This one is unoaked and is thus even more zingy, zesty and crispy compared to many other Sancerre. I just love the style; very refreshing and clean. Perfect for hot summer days.

Carillon - Puligny Montrachet 2012

This is a delicious Puligny Montrachet by Francois Carillon with all the ingrdients that you can expect from a white Burgundy. Medium yellow green colour. The smell is typically Bourgogne with lots of lime, butter and some herbs and nuts. Lovely balanced taste with medium body and a velvety finish. Keep for 5 more years and try with seafood and especially white fish. Pork and chicken dishes should work as well. Puligny Montrachet 2012  Francois Carillon Ca 350 NOK or 30€
