Clos de l'Ermitage Saint Claude Vieilles Vignes Saint-Véran Chardonnay 2016

Another star in Rosenthal book but I’m a bit puzzled by the muted enthusiasm on Delectable. Sure, not the last word on complexity but what glory in classic chard & Macon notes. Rich & minerally mouthfeel, balanced. Yeah, for less than 15$ local. So what’s the problem? — 10 days ago

@Lyle Fass Glad you like it and you're quite welcome, our stash of '05 is dwindling, two bottles remain. The '06 will be coming up from storage early next year. I've found this bottle to still have good life in 24 hrs, give it a last check tomorrow.

Le Grand Bussière St. Véran Chardonnay 2015

Not your everyday St. Veran! A serious wine that would compete with easily with some village Cotes-de-Beaune whites. A great discovery. — 11 days ago

100% malolactic fermentation, aged on the lees, no oak. Biodynamic producer. Medium pale lemon, strong intensity bouquet of lime, pineapple, blossom, honey. Full bodied with rich, creamy texture. Nutmeg, clove, honey, orange zest, lime and tropical fruit on the palate. Long finish. Excellent. Beautiful young and has the structure to get better over the next few years. — a month ago
