Tasted double-blind. Unmistakably Chardonnay but I was all about this being Chablis with bright citrus fruit, gorgeous minerals and racy acidity. What a pleasant surprise!! Even more impressive is how well this showed coming off the heels of the Montille Corton just before. I need more of this in my life.

Beautiful! Touch of flint/reduction when first poured. Asia pear, wood spice, marzipan, wood wax. Generous mouthfeel but then a focused finish of a balance of acid, phenolic tightness and mineral. A long finish.

An absolutely gorgeous wine for summer. Bright, crisp and focused with lemon zest, salty minerals and hints of dried floral. Shows wonderful purity and freshness all the way through the mineral-laced finish.

What Chardonnay wants to be. It’s Chardonnay on a great hair day.

Crisp, beautifully aromatic and perfectly balanced citrus with hints of tropical fruit. So nicely made.

One of the best values out there for white burgs. Lemon zest, some savory salinity, easy drinking for the summer ahead! If you find some on sale, load up. Given the appellation, it also ages a bit faster depending on what you like.

Very nice lean Chardonnay. Balanced, no sharp edges nor excessive oak. Didn’t stand out to me. Maybe overpowered by the food.
