Classic expression displaying a harmonious balance between fruit and floral aromas, density and suppleness, power and finesse. This vintage seems to be in a great place for drinking now with an excellent concentration of fruit to support the briny mineral component. Palate-coating and generous in character, but showing great freshness and buoyancy. — 7 days ago

Mother Mary of God! It’s a stunning example of why I adore White Burgundy.
The nose reveals; Meyer lemon, Granny Smith apples, pineapple, lime zest, stone fruit, under ripe green melon, beeswax, honeysuckle, touch of caramel, fruit blossoms, river stones, cream for days, gentle white spice, powdery limestone & brilliant, soft gentle chalkiness, steely minerals, some flintiness with jasmine, mixed greens, yellow lilies and spring flowers.
The body is full, rich, lush and waxy. It’s simply stunning as it glides over the palate. It just doesn’t get much better in White Burgundy unless you spend seriously more money. Meyer lemon, Granny Smith apples, pineapple, lime zest, stone fruit, under ripe green melon, kiwi, bruised Bosc pear, beeswax, honeysuckle, vanillin notes, touch of caramel, fruit blossoms, river stones, cream for days, butter, gentle white spice with soft, warm heat, herbaceous, powdery limestone & brilliant, soft gentle chalkiness, steely minerals, some flintiness with jasmine, mixed greens, yellow lilies and spring flowers. The phat, round acidity is like a warm, gentle rain shower. The rich, lush, ripe, polished, well balanced finish is delicious and persists several minutes.

From the Encégnières Climat, on the border to Puligny and directly below Batard-Montrachet.
Taut, young & fresh despite the 6y. Opens with a bit of matchstick reduction and some bready-nutty notes, followed by ripe lemons. On the palate this shows great concentration with a core of spicy minerality and fresh, juicy acidity around which layers of ripe lemons are wound tightly. Ends with a note of lemon tart with salty caramel.
A grand wine with amazing purity and length. — 19 days ago
Pretty good though a little understated. Closer to room temp, shows some tangy mineral spice. Just not much glycerin in the mid-palate. Good for a change of pace and for featuring the food over the wine. — 6 months ago
