Stay away from the 2009 Pascal Chablis - already wrote that up a few times on my blog. I did not buy the Rene - only 32 bucks - but hard to find:

I had it a year and a half ago and loved it --- even though far too expensive; so once was enough. When did you write up a TN about it, David?

Thanks, so it has headed downhill in the interim.

I enjoyed the Bourchard at the recent festival. The Lacray seems a bit dubious and I wouldn't spend my money experimenting with it. But, my opinion.

Thanks, all. The price for the 2009 Bouchard is about twice the price for most basic non-kosher chablis, whereas the price for the De Lacray and the 2002 Bouchard Beauroy, both of which are premier cru vineyards, is about the same as for non-kosher chablis. Never know what to make about pricing of kosher wines, especially imports.

Anyone tried the 2002 Bouchard recently? Any other kosher chablis available? Chablis is just about the only chardonnay that i like.

Nothing that I know about. There is a new Kosher Champagne from Lillian Renoir which is from 1er cru vineyards. Haven't tasted.

A friend gifted me a bottle of 02 1er cru that was not stored particularly well. Opened it at beginning of 2012 expecting the worst, but it was drinking quite nicely. At the time, I didn't envision it getting any better so if you have a bottle I would suggest you drink up.
