Everything you want in a white burgundy, nothing you don't. Walks the tightrope, balancing oak, fruit, and acidity.

Blows most Bourgogne blanc out of the water. Smoke, nuts, lemon and cream. Salty on the palate with incredible mineral edge

Drinking very nicely. Creamy, with a nice edge. Less intense than more nobel appellations but perfect for food. Great value compared with other chards.

Decanting was a good idea. Not as rich or complex as a Lafon village cru but more minerality and some pear and honey. Pretty good.
