High-toned, tense and shows the tiniest bit of Meursault-like tender green herbs on the nose. Judicious, subtle oak; ample salinity shines on the finish. Classy white Burgundy that tastes $25 more expensive than it is. #garaudet #monthelie #chardonnay #cotedebeaune

Wow has age done wonders for this. Stunning nose or wet earth, spice, green apples, some iodine. Really complex. Palate it ripe and rich with terrific minerality and wonderful purity and freshness. Almost a chewy density. Long finish. Perfectly integrated oak. Electric acids and mouthwatering finish. This is profound.

Florent made unreal 15’s. If you missed out because 15 is “low acid” you will be crying. This is as fresh as the 14 but gets it from insane minerality and good acidity. Beautiful richness and purity and finish that does not quit!

Lovely nose, very pure, buttery, mineral, shows warmth of 15 but also shows freshness and depth. Very pure. Explosive fruit.

Needs an hour to open up. The has great depth and concentration. Lasts for about an hour. Then more tropical. Better in a year or so I'd guess but still great now. Bought from fass selections.

Double decant, as Dr. Fass prescribes air for the wines of this producer. Well, whatever the alchemy, this is a class bottle of wine. So refined and bursting with all kinds of goodness.

Aromas of wood freshly cut via table or circular saw, caramelized sugar and radial tire - things were looking up. Initial glass was a bit short, which I must say was disappointing after such an auspicious beginning. After a bit of time, she broadened out into an elegant, almost weightless drink. So delicate and pleasant.
