Really well balanced at 7 years of age. Not overtly oaked or big. Just clean, elegant and delicious.

Typical Brettanomyces upfront. Wet barnyard aromas. Blows off quickly. Cherry sweet tarts.

Blend of 5 premier cru vineyards in Beaune. My kind of Chardonnay. Amazing finish.

Lemon shortbread, dried apricot, butterscotch, toast and chalk. Texture/aroma/flavor suggests time on lees, malo, plus some portion of new oak. Full body, elevated aromatic and flavor intensity.

Beautiful. Minerality, tropical fruits, and a touch of oak vanilla.

Not my favorite. Perhaps just an overly oaked / buttery style for my taste, but my real issue is that this just does not feel balanced. A bit flabby with the butter really standing out.

Es bueno, pero pensaba en otros sabores o otra cosa por el valor del mismo pero nada que ver con el precio de ese compro 2 de distintas uvas y quedo.
