Soon the summer vacation is over....but there is still time to open some bottles. A mature white Burgundy is never wrong!
1983 Chablis 1er Cru Momtee De Tonnerre, Bacheroy-Josselin
Another fine 83, one of my favourite vintages when it comes to aged white Burgundy. The nose is still tight and sturdy with notes of dried orange peel, sea food shells, birch sap, dry caramel and even a hint of dry coconut. Expressive and still youngish. Very, very good.
The taste reflects the nose with still young (but dried) yellow fruit and additional notes of rust, flint and smoke. The taste is more monolithic than the taste. No hurry to drink this one. A good acidity. A lovely companion to fried salmon balls and vegetables.
