Very light yellow, almost colorless. Extremely flowery aromatically, with lime peel, citrus blossoms, paperwhites, and sour melon, but it’s clean and steely on the palate. The wine derives from 40-year-old Chardonnay vines, hand-picked; winemaking was low-intervention and the wine aged on fine lees for 11 months. Floral and fragrant but with crisp edges. Delicious.

Good value white burgundy. I want it a little creamier but this is solid stuff. Red apple, lime zest, soft acidity.

Sur-lee aged for 12 months. Brioche, pears, apples, but light bodied and fresh.

Sweet but dry. Finishes cleanly on the palette. Serve chilled.

Good, but boring. Pear, honey, lime. Light. Medium everything.
