Just brilliant. There is a zen harmony to these whites that is utterly magical. Nose of mineral, applesauce, apple spices, pear, sprigs of fresh grass just unreal and super unique. Not your typical white burg. Palate is just delightful. Saline and super mineral with green apple and unreal balance and purity. My god this is so ultra pure. Clean as a whistle with terrific, length, minerality and balance. Unreal long finish that is just perfect. What a great wine. — 11 days ago

@Pär Sjölinder yes it is but he can’t deal with Burgundian bureaucracy so I understand. And he’s still got the Aussie wine.

Les Vergers Clos Saint-Marc Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2012

More intense and rounded. Some secondary notes coming through with a hint of honey, corn. A lovely succulent mid palate with precise acidity and overall a good balance and structure — 3 days ago

Les Meurgers des Dents de Chiens Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

Very crisp and focussed in the nose. Sharp edges with minerality some lime and sulfur. Not the broadest in the mid palate but very defined. — 3 days ago

Quite reduced on opening, this would have benefited from a decant. Opens up to a delicate, wispy expression of stone fruit, river rocks and herbs. Midpalate is creamy, and this finishes with bright acidity. A very pretty chardonnay. — a month ago

You know, I would have never even thought to decant a white. Still so much to learn even after a while of enjoying wine!

@Chris A young, reduced white burgs and sulfury German Riesling, to name two styles, really benefit from aeration. This was a resto purchase, wish I had more time with it

Wow. Totally 2015. Thank god for vintages. Nose is so rich. Caramel a bit. Palate is so dense. Rich. So dense. Almost chewy. Still nice acidic balance. Mineral.

Blind tasted... I said Chassangne or Saint Aubin, so I was pretty close. Really nice but very tight and closed. Reductive and chiseled but needs a few years in the bottle to reveal midnpalate. — 2 days ago

Delicious, gloriously wispy and mineral. Stone fruits, roasted nut, cream - nicely focused and so delicate. There's a nice savory yeastiness, almost sake-like. Picks up steam and fleshes out with air, acid kicks in on the finish. Could age a bit. Just lovely. — a month ago
