The inimitable Grosbot-Barbara Chardonnay Tressallier St. Pourcain blend. A favorite of mine. Nothing like it. Nose is really terrific. Like elite 1er Cru st. Aubin. Airy, mineral and so aromatically refined. Classy minerals. Really classy. This is such an elite wine. Subtle spice. Hint of framing oak. So good. Balanced and super pure. Juicy, structured, clean and electric. Rich and energetic with a knockout finish. Amazingly precise and deep. Such a brilliant wine. It’s like white burgundy crossed with Anjou Blanc. So good

One of true great secrets of the wine world. 70% Chardonnay and 30% Tressallier. Nothing like it. Energy for days. Beautiful pillow like aromas. Candied but so barely it’s remarkable. Hint of confectionary. Stoney, so floral. Haunting. Just ridiculous. This is the best bottle of this wine I’ve had so far. There is such a purity to the aromas which are so unique because Tressallier is such a freaky grape. But it’s a fine aroma. Amazing palate. Such depth, density and acidity and a taught structure. The energy and intensity is incredible. So long, so mineral. Outrageous. This would compete in a line up of Meursault Perrieres. Structure to burn and a bright future. This will be best in 7 years I think. This is built like a brick house.

Tropical nose, wine is so dense with lots of cardamon and cloves in the taste .. too much oak!!!
