Many wooters are very familiar with this project. My first woot offer on March 5, 2013 was the WineSmith Double Dare, in which I dared you to guys (that’s the Jersey second person plural, so you too, ladies) to buy a ten year old Chardonnay that I’m telling you is just getting ready to drink, and to prove it, I double dare you to also buy the 2004, which I’m telling you is sort of terrible because it’s NOT ready yet.
When you responded by sucking up 240 packs in 24 hours from an unknown winemaker with a crazy ass jive line like that, I knew I had finally found my tribe. I do hope that those of you who know the wines will chime in with a little third party testimony.
As far as I’m concerned, I have found no better forum for my strange little projects than right here on these boards, my friends. You have been equally welcoming to my Cabernet Francs, my Petite Sirahs and my Pinots, to say nothing of Crucible Cabernet Sauvignon, which is from the Napa College Student Vineyard and in 2006 terminated the Faux Chablis project when the Chardonnay was completely torn out in favor of this glorious Cab.
But now we have come full circle, and here we go again. Only this time, it’s a little different. Every year, the Faux Chablis has gotten richer and more minerally. The 2004 has come around very nicely now, and today we will polish off the few remaining cases. To everyone’s surprise, especially mine, the 2005, though massive, is a bit precocious, and in a scant ten years is fully drinkable, full of fresh lemon zest, albeit yet to acquire the champagne-like yeasty complexities the 2004 and its older sisters now exhibit in spades.
Here is what some other Wooters have said:
Been waiting for this. Auto buy to the max. Not your normal in-your-face CA juice, but quite tastefully reserved, and it seems to cellar forever. Clark is the real deal, as are his wines.
When heading to the past don't accidentally make your mom fall in love with you, and then when in the future don't bring anything back with you. Except Clarks wine, we'll make an exception for that.
I just opened up another bottle after getting back from a good day of skiing and upon reading the WineSmith email of the offering and to solidify the fantastic experience of the first bottle I consumed and it is delicious. You can't go wrong with this wine and if you haven't had a French Chablis, then try this and you will know what you are missing.
I'm all in on this offering.
My 365 bottle cellar will be overflowing, but with this kind of quality and the limited nature of it...
