Classic stuff. Light oak, elegant, deep and mineral. Satisfying.

Nice little mid Monday taste. Lemon, mineral and wet stones. High acid and lovely lemon and stone flavors. Good weight and exquisite balance and freshness.

Terrific minerality and purity. What freshness. So tremendous. Dried compote fruits. Baked apple. Spice. Aromas jump out of the glass. Wow. Texture and purity. Wow. Juicy. Insane aromas on this very humble wine. Apple pie.

Candied and over ripe nose, very chalky green pepper palate. Odd.

Chilled this burgundy felt restrained, minimal, and one dimensional. As it opened up though, paired with a delicious bouillabaisse, escargot and the best foie gras I’ve ever had, thus started to really come into its own. Medium body, a refined minerality but with delicious notes of crisp apple, baking spice, and an some richer, pastry like notes on the finish, this wine truly came into its own with some warmth and time. Not too rich, not too dry, a perfect balance of crisp fruit, minerality, and baked richness for shellfish dishes with a tomato base.
