Excellent Bourgogne. Tart, lemony, clean and tasty. No detectable oak. My last of 3. All have been very good.

Excellent Chardonnay! Blind I would have thought it was much more expensive. I wish I owned a case!

Excellent Bourgogne Blanc. May improve from here. Nose is somewhat herbal. Tastes of peach fruit. Balanced. Fairly long. Classy.

Licorice, gala apple, slight toast, floral and amazing acid. Drinking well above Bourgogne.

πŸ… Rating 90+/100 (4,05⭐)

Fresh, floral and energetic. Slightly reductive, but with light touch of oak. Bee wax, yellow plum. Saline minerality on the palate reminds of Chablis from Kimmeridgian limestone. Silky texture, flavours support the nose. Difficult to believe it is regional Bourgogne appellation. It does have this Saint Aubin signature to it. And we know from Olivier Lamy that fruit comes from vineyards adjacent to village and often times declassified fruit from superior appellations enriches this Bourgogne blend.

Superb value for money.

Drink till 2023
