A fav producer that I unfortunately don’t experience enough. Beautiful Bourgogne blanc, ample fruit and succulent, underpinnings of mineral and earth without being too contemplative. The class comes through on the clarity of the fruit and deft hand with cooperage. Ripe green apples, white peach, melon, meyer lemon peel, apple blossom, masa, nuts, kiss of honey and white rocks. Spot on!

Fkowers, peaches and sweet oak spices. Great body and acidity, showing youth. Great value

Crazy good. Probably the best QPR on white burgundy I've had in years. Wow.

Apple, pear, nectarine and tropical fruits on the nose. Slight butter and toast. Hint of smoke or burnt wood. Rich texture and smooth. Drink really nicely. Great value

Even with a head cold.. Showing baked pear/Apple and toasty notes. Nice acid. Drinking way above its pay grade..

Truly serious juice, with sweet buttery crackers, ripe stone fruits, grilled lemons and elegant oaky addition dominate the youthful and promising nose, which flows into BOOM!!! Powerful fruit, great texture and enough acidity to let its generous fruit glide elegantly on the more-ish finish.

Honeysuckle/mild ripe white peaches/very slight hints of grass/overtones of lemon and dare i say nectarines on the long finish? Doesn't fall flat after 30 seconds on the finish. Some ripe red fruit as it opens-but subtle. Acidity opens up a bit as it goes. Solid representative Chardonnay that should be taken seriously. Definitely a solid purchase. Acidity mellows as it opens to coat the palate. Spring anyone?

No way you would say this is Vin de Bourgogne. Go buy a bottle at Flat Iron Wines! Amazing Value. Please don't buy it all !
