A great Monopole and excellent for the vintage. Mineral and saline to complement its ripeness.

Punchy lemon fruit, lime, zippy and vibrant. Full throttle and intense. Exhilarating.

Interesting to compare this with the 1er Cru Les Perrieres from Henri Boillot from 2015 a few months ago. A touch of oak initially on the nose - caramel notes. Lemony and citric on the light weight palate, with stoney mineral notes and a noticeable saline finish. You can taste the well balanced oak on the palate. More minerality than most top notch Australian Chardonnays.

Pale Lemon in colour. Initial notes of honey and citrus. Refreshing and balanced with M minus acid, good intensity and noticeable minerality. The balance is exceptional with the oak perfectly integrated. An excellent wine but not raving, and sorry for being parochial, but there are many Australian Chardonnays I would rate as high, if not higher, at half the price although I do like Henri Boillot white burgundies.

Physically Distanced 🚧 but Socially Close 🤗 dinner, our first in +8mo. Following the reasonable NY State dining regulations, seated and masked. While a new experience, it was well worth it to see our core group again.
