Bourgogne blanc "Cuvée des Forgets" 2007, Patrick Javillier

I often find the "petits vins" from a domaine are the most reliable indicator of quality. A very good Bourgogne blanc is harder to craft than a decent Meursault. This 2007 Bourgogne blanc is citronné, mineral, finely balanced, fresh and nerveux. A very nice wine. Wait until 2011, serve it blind with shellfish and tell everyone its a Chablis 1er cru. Tasted at the domaine.
