One of the best village white Burgs I’ve had. Beautiful fragrance of stony wet Burgundian earth, sweet marzipan, caramel, and pear. Gorgeous balance in the mouth. Fruit, acid, minerality, length. What a value!

@Delectable Wine this is the Monthelie Blanc. Smoking great bottle. Super finessed and elegant in 2016 with cracking acidity and freshness. Good mouthfeel and crunch. Really easy to drink.

Just a brilliant bottle of Chardonnay!

The nose is just a wonderful bouquet of hazelnut, two-season old but recently split oak, warming red apple and some wet stony aspect I can't quite pin.

The palate is creamy and understated oak, apple, mineral-y Chardonnay fruits with perhaps a squeeze of lemon.

This is very good, incredible value at $28! I'm really digging this AOC, value-city here, both the whites and the reds drink as well as their counterparts in more well-known regions, but at a value savings of +30%, Monthelie I adore thee!

24hr Update: Fully stable, almost no change, beautiful still.
