This was delicious, and a winning blind for me. Having a baseline on the table definitely helped. Although less sweet and intense, I felt the JM Millot was in the same genre as the Métras, with similar texture, floral lift, minerality, and red fruit profile. It was the difference in fruit sweetness that gave it away as being from greater Burgundy, whereby Pinot Noir usually appears less sweet than Gamay to me. The village was definitely a lot harder to identify which made sense upon the reveal - when in doubt, it’s probably from one of the lesser communes (or Morey lol!). Fine, fresh, and energetic, I would have drank a lot more of it if not for the other wines on the table. Another to revisit. — 11 days ago

Nothing phenomenal but a good clean representation of the region and the fruit.
Paired quite well with 🍣

Pale lemon with aromas of citrus, stone fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple, melon and lemon citrus with creamy notes of honey and vanilla oak. Medium+ finish, vivid acidity and ends with mineral character. Drink now while it’s fresh! — 5 days ago
Great chardonnay with clean finish. Perfect blend of oak and fruit. Could have a little more finish and nose. — 5 days ago
