Tasted the red version from 2015 a few nights ago. This is pale to mid Lemon in colour. Citrus peel and a tiny bit of oak on the nose. Light to medium bodied with nice texture and citric acid tension. The majority of this cuvée is drawn from 60 year old vines rooted in a single site in Meursault called Les Millerands (so named because of the small bunches and berries that result in this terroir. ) Les Millerands is on the Puligny side of Meursault. The wine was raised in 12 hectolitre cask for 12 months before spending a few months resting in tank. Not complex - juicy and ready to drink. — a day ago
Intriguing nose with floral, mineral and savory fruit; poached fresh berries. Also showing up is a subtle meaty Syrah-like note. The first sip reveals tremendous inner mouth florals; and a prism of bright red, purple and blue fruit appear on the palate. Caressing texture and sensuous tannins. Just ripe with a measured perception of sweetness. On the whole so lifted and elegant. The intentionality is clear; Godard is coaxing expressions of gamay that are beautiful and different than any I’ve tried before, and at a very reasonable price... for now. Very much worth seeking out. — 2 days ago
Coming from the old quarry behind the Perrieres premier cru area. Very aromatic nose of white fruit, some mint and a touch of oak it seems. The palate is round, rich, mineral and intense, yet with energy and a lot of precision of flavours, i am sure in a blind tasting that the friends would call a much higher level wine, at minimum a Meursault Villages, what a great success from Valentin Jobard.
Vignes provenant de l’ancienne carrière derrière le fameux premier cru Perrieres. Vin très aromatique, menthe, fruits blancs, une touche boisée mais de façon judicieuse il me semble. Attaque et bouche ronde avec une tension appuyée, quelle texture et des saveurs franches et précises, belle énergie. Bien curieux à l’aveugle de voir ce que les amis prédiraient, bien meilleur que son niveau, superbe. J’en veux d’autres! 90-91 à ce niveau.

Powerful, & dark fruited. This took a bit to fully open up. It started with heavy oaky spice & black tea tannins. The rich black cherry character moved to the front as well as a more silky elegant texture. Chassagne & Santenay vineyards here. Needs some air or a little more time in the bottle, but a very nice wine. — 13 days ago
Straight up one of the very best Bourgogne Blancs I’ve had for $37.99 and higher.
Again, drinks like a well made 1st Cru Meursault.
This caught on with a few of the right palates in NYC not long ago. It won’t stay at this price...grab what you can now. Especially, with 25% tariffs on newer vintages.
2015, 2016 & 2017 all very good.
Previous notes will work.

Burgundy that has nothing to envy to the prestigious appellations of the region. Very nice plain Pinot Noir; quite light, magnificent texture on the palate, tertiary notes with hints of vanilla, almost caramelized perfectly melted. Super price / pleasure ratio.
Bourgogne générique qui n’a rien à envier aux appellations prestigieuses de la région. Très beau Pinot Noir nature; assez léger, texture en bouche magnifique, notes tertiaires aux touches vanillées, quasiment caramélisées parfaitement fondues. Super rapport prix/plaisir . — 6 hours ago
Nose: the freshest grapefruit peel ever. So Floral.
Palate: grapefruit liquor mineral juicy. Wow. Not rose-ish. Vinous. Salty.
Needs an hour to open up. Then it’s maybe the best rose ever.
A must buy. There is no other wine like this.
An iconic rose

Nose has intense spring flowers, ripe/aromatic pear, dried lemon, green apple flesh and (minor) wet slate.
Palate has warmed yellow apple, dried strawberry, ripe pear, light oak treatment, minor acidity on the long finish.. Amazing, outstanding bottle!
Much more weight to the palate than expect, blind this is not Bourgogne Blanc to me, baby Chassagne?
