Drank 1/8/18. Decent with Chicken Picatta.

I've had the 2015 in the past, but this is my first experience with the 16. Overall, a very similar wine.

Nose of pear and green apple, with slight mineral notes. Similar flavors, very clean with pear apple, and a touch of citrus with mineral notes and a rich mouthfeel from the wood exposure. Medium crisp finish.

3/22/8/5/3 +50 = 91 pts.

Lots of ginger and pineapple, in balance.

Drank 7/3/18. Excellent pairing with shrimp in a butter and garlic sauce.

Nose of apple and pears, backed by some earthy elements. On the palate a medium to full mouthfeel yields flavors of green apple and pear backed by some subtle minerality and lemon curd. The flavors last on the finish for around 45 seconds. Very nice. If there is such thing as value in Burgundy, this is it. Enjoyed this more than the last time I drank it, though both were good experiences.

Gorgeous everyday white Burgundy. Easily as nice as many Meursault.

Elegant and creamy with a perfect amount of oak. Medium bodied with notes of spiced pears and buttered toast. A really beautiful wine!

Racy with subtle fruit and very subdued dry oak. At this price you're better off drinking Calera or pouilly fuisse.
