Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Light straw in color.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing citrus, lemons, apples, oak, light vanilla, spices, minerals and white pepper.

Spicy finish with oak and almonds.

This Chardonnay from Burgundy is enjoyable by itself, although a little oaky for me, and watery on the finish.

Very pleasant to drink, and good by itself or with food.

100% Chardonnay grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 6 months.

13% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Nice example and loaded with a range of citrus, melon, apple and pear and just enough acidity to hold it all together. Above expectations and quite food friendly.

Apple, pear, citrus blossom, slight butter(malo), little toast, medium bodied and nice acid. I feel like they introduced a couple new barrels into the program for this vintage and let it go partially through malo. For someone who wants a fuller, toastier PF, I’d say this 2020 is your bottle for the price.

In southern Burgundy, at the northern border of Beaujolais, lies the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation. Pale lemon with aromas of citrus, stone fruits and sweet floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple, melon and lemon citrus with notes of honey and vanilla oak. Medium+ finish, vivid acidity and ends with minerality. Consistent quality! Nice! Good value!

Little heavy handed. Oak spice, malo, tart apple and great acid. Wish they would’ve used more neutral oak, which they usually do. Might have been the year to bring in new barrels. That being said, had with pepper crusted seared tuna and it held up well.

Found another ‘17! In southern Burgundy, at the northern border of Beaujolais, lies the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation. Pale lemon with aromas of citrus, stone fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of stone fruits, melon and lemon citrus, showing subtle vanilla oak tones. The finish has lively acidity and ends with a touch of minerality. Consistent quality! Still tasting great!

Functional Costco purchase @ $18.99. Delectable has this at $30. 🙄 Wouldn’t it be great for users & the app if we could buy wine through Delectable at more reasonable prices plus free shipping? Think of all the platform bugs Delectable could fix with the added revenue.

The nose shows; honeysuckle notes, ripe, ruby & sour lemons, overripe pineapple juice, dried apricots, yellow peach, touch of marmalade fruit, combo of white with shades of pink grapefruits, melted caramel, saline, limestone, soft, understated chalkiness, toasted nuts, candle wax, green leaves that are not quite eucalyptus, melted raw sugar, butterscotch notes with candied yellow lilies and a touch of mixed flower greens.

The body is; thick, full, round with high viscosity. Honeysuckle notes, ripe, ruby & sour lemons, overripe pineapple juice, dried apricots, yellow peach, tangerines, touch of marmalade fruit, combo of white with shades of pink grapefruits, melted caramel, vanilla, saline, white spice, limestone, dry, crushed volcanics, soft, understated chalkiness, toasted nuts, candle wax, warm toast, green leaves that are not quite eucalyptus, melted raw sugar, butterscotch notes with candied yellow lilies and a touch of mixed flower greens. The acidity is round and beautiful. The finish is; rich, ruby, elegant, well balanced fruit & earth and persists nicely for minutes.

Smashing with Turkish Dried Apricots.

Cheeses; Jasper Hill Alpha Tolman & Willoughby, Mimolette. Dried Turkish Apricots, Cashews & Columbus Italian Dry Salami. Otherwise, tonight’s dinner.
