Really highlights the terroir/earthy side of white burgundy—which I kind of expect from Auxey. Nose has wet, limestoney Burgundian earth with a dash of pond rocks, notes of lemon oil and butterscotch, a little barely ripe peach fruit. Round and soft in the mouth, with a good initial whack, though the acids are a little lower than I’d ideally like. Satisfying that Burgundian itch tonight.

Loaded with toffee and caramel and lemon. Either premox, or slight botrytis, not just “ripe fruit” in here. Will see what community notes are. Would never guess white burg.

Wonderful lemon curd and stone washed purity, with a unexpectedly forward use of oak. Delightful

Minerality, hazelnuts, Meyer lemon, and lively acidity.

More Malo than I expected with a nice acidity to balance it out - more new world for sure

Nice! Green oily apple, some butter, hint of popcorn. Citrus, unripe apple.

Really hope this was a bad bottle I got. Just all buttered popcorn and nothing else.
