Not all Bourgogne are created equal, red or white, this we can all agree. This is one of the best Bourgogne blanc I have had in some time and is from Pommard legend Comte Armand, a house known for their powerful but ethereal reds from Pinot Noir.
A light to medium gold color. Impressive nose and flavors of juicy green and golden delicious apple, slate/stone like minerality, white florals like an elegant honeysuckle, a light toasted hazelnut note, with a touch of baking spice and vanilla you'd expect on this young white Burgundy (all used barrels here btw!). Very good and refreshing acidity. Long and elegant finish, the flavors stay with you while the weightlessness of the palate impresses!
This drinks more like a really good village or 1er as it should as Condemaine is a single parcel near Volnay. I also wanted to try this as it has 10% Chardonnay muscaté which no doubt adds to the complexity and intensity of the nose and palate. — a month ago
Light garnet, plummy undercurrent with raspberry and hints of strawberry, mild tannins in the backs of the cheeks. Very smooth with light, nuanced red fruit flavours and a somewhat briny or clay-ey finish. — 2 months ago
Good now but seems like a lot more life ahead. Ripe red cherries, strawberries, maybe plums. Moderate plus acidity and more tannins than you’d expect from pinot. Some chalkiness and almost meaty notes. Vanilla is noticeable. Just better and better as it opens. — a month ago

Tasted blind. Red purple in the glass. Looks young. Killer nose. Everyone smiles. Notes of red cherries, tan spice, rhubarb, some rosemary and a little candied fruit. Very refined in the mouth. Masculine. Very balanced, with ample fruit and matching structure. Has the precision of a great Rousseau. As good as burgundy gets. Guessed 71 Rousseau Chambertin. This goes on the list of all time greats for me. Thanks Stan! — 2 months ago
Plastic beach ball, peach, lemon, honey, oyster shell. I think this is technically dry, but there is quite a lot of ripe stonefruit and honey. Medium citrus acidity balances things out with lingering mineral notes.
Balanced and way too drinkable for 13% ABV. Yum — 14 days ago
