Nose has struck match (or flint smashed with a hammer), ripe pineapple, honeycomb, sweet white flowers, tangerine pit, neutral oak and trailing note of alcohol. (13.0% ABV)
Palate has under-ripe peach, under-ripe yellow cherry, pineapple core, moist flint, wet oak, yellow apple, fresh lemon peel and a medium finish.
Very enjoyable bottle, and we're much looking forward to it's evolution this evening. — 6 months ago
Here's a finely balanced #bourgogneblanc that drinks so pleasantly by itself - touch of oak, good acid, a bit more fruit forward but still some steely minerality. It's a really versatile pairing wine - believe it or not, it paired well with some mild enchiladas and refried black beans, with that brightness and fruit cutting through the richness of the cheese and beans.

Glad I saved one of these! This thing blossomed amazingly! Butter and soft boiled eggs, marigold, brioche, apricot, lemon curd and chicken bone with a nearly translucent pineapple hint to the aromas. A smoky and austere entry last year has acquiesced to briny lemon, hazelnut oil, caperberry, sesame and flint, with a resonance bordering on chalky sunflower. Stunning. Should have saved more! #Champy #whiteburgundy #bourgogneblanc #burgundy #bougogne #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth #chardonnay #chardon #blancshavemorefun #blanche #viréclessé — 2 years ago
Funky cheese on fallen lime. Earthy white mushroom and leek, hazelnut and brined cucumber slices. Bright and sharp citrus that illuminates the whole. A slight creaminess rounds the lime on the palate like a key lime filling, lemon pudding, crystal lemon, soft chive, underripe yellow apple, lime pith, orange juices that in a blink turn lemon; fresh, transparent cilantro sword flashes. #moutarddiligent #Chablis #ChablisGrandCru #grandcru #Chardonnay #singlevineyard #Valmur #DomaineMoutardDiligent #bourgogneblanc #whiteburg #WhiteBurgundy #Thanksgiving — a year ago
A touch musty, with lemon and tangerine below. Lemon verbena, citrus pith pudding and dried limestone make this steely, coconut and charcoal dust sea wind take on interesting tastes. Like an ocean-soaked lime-in-brine over driftwood. Additional smells of lychee and ginkgo emerge with added depth and dried bamboo scents. The palate has sprouted green olive and caper notes. Still alive and staying there. #pouillyfuissé

Crisp and steely minerality, acidity, what you expect from a nice #bourgogneblanc , but the unexpected delight is the fruit forward touch of sweetness. — a year ago
Ah, the famed white #burgundy #bourgogneblanc . It was the first fine white wine I can remember drinking and still my favorite. This is a fantastic #chablis example - just vary serving temperature to explore the layers of flavor. Honeysuckle, spring fields aroma and crisp minerality - tastes like it smells and a long finish. — 2 years ago
This wine has an apple and lime interplay, with matchstick, pencil, lemon oil and hazelnut scents forever. Gas lamp, briny yellow olive, lemon pith, lemon seed, white clay, clean smoke. Such an easy, deft and focused wine. Puts some pep in your step. #Bourgogne #bourgogneblanc #frenchwine #whiteburgundy #whitewine #burglove — 3 years ago
