LA BASTID Viura Blend 2016

Serious and seriously exceptional from a French master making Burgundy style Rioja. It’s more Burgundy though - expertly integrated oak (French) and acid - equally intense and graceful. Pale and powerful tutorial in balance. — a month ago

Les Cloux Rully 1er Cru Chardonnay

Strong nose of vanilla and tastes okay and buttery at the start, but finishes with strong citrus and stone fruit notes. Very intriguing! — 7 days ago

Referts Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

9.4

The nose reveals; lemon, lime, green apple, overripe pineapple, some some fruit, silvered almonds, honeysuckle notes, beeswax, wet river-stones, chamomile, orange peel, slight waft if dark caramel, soft vanillin, sea spray, light saline, warm toast, wet, soft chalkiness, touch of candied ginger, perfumed, spring flowers and fragrant yellow lilies.

The body is; thick, round, slightly waxy & voluptuous. 2010 is an excellent vintage and time in bottle has served it well. Striving to its peak, there is nice integration with honey qualities. Excellent texture/mouthfeel. Lemon, lime, green & golden apple, overripe pineapple, some some fruit, silvered almonds, honeysuckle notes, beeswax, wet river-stones, chamomile, butterscotch, orange peel, slight waft of dark caramel, soft vanillin, sea spray, light saline, warm toast, wet, soft chalkiness, limestone minerals, gritty, pungent, grey volcanics touch of candied ginger, touch of white spice, perfumed, spring flowers and fragrant yellow lilies. The acidity is round & phat. Like Goldilocks & her last porridge, it’s just right. The long; beautiful, voluptuous, sexy & well balanced finish is delicious and lingers on the palate minutes.

Playing very well into our Jasper Hill Farms Willoughby soft white cheese with champagne washed rind.

Photos of; our cold, morning April walk in their Puligny-Montrachet Vineyard, our tour through their cellars with Olivier Leflaive and our multi-course lunch paired with six of their wines...finishing with their Bastard.
