Star bright yellow gold with chartreuse highlights. Inviting nose of ripe quince and celery. Well-structures, medium-bodies palate yields ripe pomes (quince, pear, yellow apple) and concrete mineral around firm acidity. Great with a wide range of foods, but especially rich seafood, cream sauces, and root vegetables. Drink now through 2025. — 5 days ago
High flavour intensity, a bit bigger bodied than optimal, but balanced by a high acidity. It feels slightly less fresh than just over a year ago, alcohol is a bit more prominent at the moment. — a day ago
Decent mid-weight white burgundy, but not all that exciting. Clean, crisp, nicely balanced but with absolutely no “wow”. You have to question the price/quality ratio with wines of this type. Kiss of death is almost no sense of “terroir” or place—- just another dry white! — a month ago
It’s always fun to taste something 10 months later after you have tasted it only in the cellar. It’s quite a moment. Anyway this is even better now than it was 10 months ago. Superb nose. Wild berries, alpine flowers, intense minerality, violets, lavender, just gorgeous, also a bit wild and feral. Palate is classic Mondeuse with terrific grip, concentration and a wild rustic yet still linear side. Energy for days, ripe and grippy tannins and a knockout finish that keeps pumping. — a day ago
Pretty complex - as you’d expect with a 5-varietal blend. Just opened it - a little tight still. But I think it will be very good in an hour. — 2 days ago
Saturday lunch at home with friends. All tasters very impressed with this Village Bourgogne from the 2014 vintage which was excellent for whites. Great intensity and tension for a village wine. Good minerality. No time for detailed notes. Went well with fresh Tasmanian oysters. — a month ago
Still a very robust wine. Not in the least past its prime. There’s a lot of fruit left, but there’s also a lot of oak., even after 26 years. This has dried out the wine a little bit. Don’t make too much out of my criticism. The wine is very enjoyable, so the bottle was finished without any complaints from my friends at the table.
