Lemon tart, lemon curd and lemon yoghurt on the nose. Hints of apricots and green pineapple as well. On the palate high acidity, chalky minerality, green apples and lemon. A hint of butterscotch. It seems rather ripe and rather evolved in color for a 2016. #montrachet #chassagnemontrachet #chardonnay #burgundy #whiteburgundy — 2 months ago
Straw with gold leaf glints. Compelling nose of acorn squash, zucchini blossom, cooling lemon zest, green apple, lime, drawn, clarified butter, corn flakes, tiny sprinkles of dried pineapple, and banana leaf aromas. Soft lemon pith and wet peel, green orchid stem, tangy, deconstructed lime from zest to oil and pith, lemon grass, and fresh cut lemon somehow echoing green apple tart bursts; lean and sexy with myriad edible flowers, lavender, squash blossom, nasturtiums, dandelion, and others, small and subtle. Overall a great Chardonnay with elegance and calculated beauty reminiscent of a Japanese garden, or a small, manicured French palatial jardin. .
