2020 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

2020 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

This popular Kirkland bottle usually hits stores around this time of the year.  It was a little late last year arriving in March, at least around the Atlanta area.

The price actually went down with this latest vintage, just a few cents, but glad to see it not going the other way.

Finding Premier Cru Chablis like this under $20 is pretty rare, but that’s what they’re able to do year in and year out with this Kirkland offering.

We’ve reviewed four of the past vintages:

2014 vintage: 87 points

2016 vintage: 88 points

2018 vintage: 89 points

2019 vintage: 90 points

Still no word on what happened with the 2016 or 2017 vintages, if we missed them or they weren’t produced, but that’s a ways behind us now.  Our scores have steadily been creeping up, and this bottle remains a reader favorite from all the notes we receive about it.

Getting into the new 2020 vintage, we’re finding a lot to like, similar to the 2019.  The wine is a medium gold in color; minerally on the nose with citrus fruit; in the mouth, green apple, lemon flavor with good acidity and a solid finish. Perhaps a touch more mineral this time compared to past vintages.

It’s unoaked Chardonnay, so it’s pure and clean throughout which we love. Once again, a fantastic buy, and a bottle to stock up on if you have a chance.  These move fast, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have a few on hand, now or for the warmer months to come.

A quick check of Cellartracker.com shows current ownership of every vintage from 2014 through 2020. They were produced, you just missed them.

I haven't had this new one, but the past couple of years of this wine were both good. If you like chardonnay but not the buttery taste, I agree, this is a good one.
