Complex nose, spicey oak, green apple, gorgeous minerality, terrific spice, amazing deep minerality and a stunning expansiveness. Really wonderful white burgundy symphony on the nose. Just unreal. What a nose. Tree bark, dry soil. Just stunning. Wow. Juicy, energetic, luscious, fresh, vital, elegant, complex. Wow. What a wine. Just gorgeous. Maybe best Monthelie Blanc I’ve ever had from Boussey. Explosive and wonderful. Spicey as well. A brilliant bottle. Finish is epic. — 5 months ago
Such a value play. Nose is super wide and wonderful. Like a baby Meursault. Buttery, nutty and rich. But also tensile. Mineral and super expressive. Such a nice combo of richness and airy minerality. Palate is just bomb. Elegant, tensile and rich. Awesome purity and freshness and great sap. Really focused and delineated. Lovey mineral and grippy finish. Terrific.
As this aired the oak became a bit more prominent. 9.2 now. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
9.2 to 9.3 overnight. Rich, buttery and a bit woody. But lovely mineral clarity and purity. Lemon. So good today. It’s all there. Good freshness, density and concentration. Long finish. — 5 months ago
Wow. What a stunning wine. Big big cherry, so evocative. Amazing aromas. Lifted, bright and with so much depth. Amazing cherry flower. Just insane. Tree bark. Smells like elite Volnay with the rustic edge of Monthelie. This is a great wine. What a palate. Juicy, complex and sweet. Licorice on the nose. Stunning palate. In great burgundy vintages people who can’t afford the better wines really have alot of options at Fass Selections. What a wine!!! 9.45!! — 4 months ago
Gorgeous and subtle nose of deep red cherries and a lipstick like intensity. Lovely deep minerals as well. Very classy. Pure and vivid. Just lovely. 19 is so good. Palate is elegant and refined with lovely sweet fruit and terrific inner mouth aromas. Wonderful elegant mouthfeel. Really tremendous freshness and vitality. Awesome fruit quality here. Really a lovey wine. So drinkable and has so much finesse. And that 19 fruit! Wonderful!
After air this gets so fragrant and pretty. Mid season red cherries, sour cherries, cranberry bog, so aromatic. Sapid and juicy now with structure arriving.
So complete after 4 hours. Wonderfully elegant. What a wine. Picks up a lovely velvety quality. — 5 months ago

Want a value, every day drinking burgundy. You could do a lot worse than this. Has that syrup nose that I love in a good Gevrey with a different finish that I like even if not as much as the bigger name villages. Love it. Thank you Brett Taylor — 3 months ago
Nose has spicey and sweet red cherries. Cherries covered in spices. Superb depth but also a lot of hidden depth. Very very nice but has more to reveal. Smells tighter and more serious than the Hauts Brins. Palate is so elegant almost like a Volnay. Serious structure as well and so pure. This needs air and will only improve. Long finish with terrific clarity of cherry fruit. Lovely delineation and so fresh. This is deep and structured and has a very persistent finish. Wonderful. I’ll be back as this has 9.4 written all over it.
Starting to get really fragrant. Wow such a wide spectrum. Really floral now. Spectacular. Superb mid season red cherry fruit and spice. So sapid.
So juicy, silky and sapid after 4 hours. Like a baby Volnay. Terrific structure for short term aging. — 5 months ago
