2016 Burgundy... Do I need to say more? It's slamming good!

Nose is a saline solution with sweet green apple and light oyster shell.
Palate is incredible balanced acidity with Anjou pear and this ever lingering saline finish.

For certain, one of the best BoJo blancs to ever grace my glass!

Happy Valentine's Day 2019 to all.

24hr Update: Nose has subsided slightly, but the palate is going strong and picking up minor red fruit (strawberry) notes. I tend to pick up those red notes only in Chardonnay from Beaujolais, after about a day or two after opening, interesting.

Best bojo Blanc in the game hands down with apologies to JP Brun but this is on another level. Soaring nose of green apple, white flowers and sea salt. Gorgeous. Drop dead. Very aromatic. Deep and so so mineral with engaging complexity. The palate is so elegant and has really terrific length and there is exquisite purity here. Amazing depth and truly vibrant and defined fruit. This is utterly complete and is by far the best Bojo Blanc I’ve ever had. What a find.

Lovely fruited Chardonnay. Tingling acidity. Green apple. Great with food.

Lovely with Vietnamese food. But not sweet or fruity at all.
