This wine was balanced, delicate, and demure. An elegant Chardonnay grown on the hillsides of the Montagne de Corton in the Grand Cru appellation of Corton-Charlemagne within the Côte de Beaune region of Burgundy. I would love to pair this with lobster tail or scallops and risotto...

Daaaaammmnnn this is 🔥!!! Gots all the signatures of a big ass Cali cabs, but like I dunno, sophisticated and demure. All those ripe lush fruity juiciness was just so perfectly interwoven with cocoa coffee graphite and lightly crushed herbs all with jusssst the right amount of oakiness <chef’s kiss> — 8 months ago
Domaine Faiveley, Mazis-Chambertin, Grand Cru. 2006 Vintage. Medium Garnet. Umami notes on the nose and palate - wet earth, mushroom, dried herbs - also ripe black cherry, wild strawberry, violet, vanilla, nutmeg. Tannins are very present but also soft. Elegant wine. Demure at first but with time and acquaintance opened up nicely. — 5 months ago
Nose took a while to get there and then wow. Crunchy berries, floral, high toned, but reserved and demure and holding so much back. Insane inner mouth aromas, sweet fruit and earthy. Gorgeous energy and minerality. Pure and ephemeral. Balance is perfect. So pure. But all in all too young. Wonderful wine. — a year ago
Densely concentrated in savory flavors of soy, leather and tobacco, the demure fruit leans into red currant, raspberry while structured in grippy, silky tannin. A cellar-worthy wine, it will do well over time, expanding its reach into dark-chocolate and nutmeg underpinnings. — 4 months ago
Ok, damn...this shiyit be muthafuckin demure. Extracted blackberry syrup dusted with white pepper and a hint of mole negro and bitters that rolls into a soft velvety finish that’s like the perfect bite of a berry arugula salad — 7 months ago
Needs an hour decant. All over the place before that. Almost a study In wine evolution.
Nose is a bit slutty. Then it becomes almost demure. Ah fuck corked.

Opened directly into decanter....but stole a first sip - bright cherry and pretty intense menthol out of the gate - felt illegal so waited and hour for second sip, which still had the cherry but menthol turns to soap, just overly intensely perfumed. Waited four hours. Super soft earth and delicate fruit, gorgeous with a pork shoulder. Demure, even coy - you have to keep finding it. — a year ago
