Burgundy night. Started off with a nice champagne followed by a Cali roussanne to calibrate the palates.

Not only was this my white of the night, it was my wine of the night (and voted the same by the group). Lemon cream nose and on the palate. Honeyed almonds and marzipan. Fantastic!

Clean with a hint of fig, apple, pineapple, mango and a nice fresh crisp melon meets white asparagus on the finish... This is a wonderful Chardonnay

If you can get past the new oak, under ripe fruit, and searing alcohol then congratulations, this is the New World-imitation Chardonnay for you!

Excellent tasting in Aloxe-Corton at Louis Latour's winery for nearby grand crus; met Harold Small of Confererie des Chaine des Rotisseurs San Diego; great #2008 #cortoncharlemagne ; now that the 2008 harvest has settled its once searing acidity; #louislatour #burgundy #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours #france2015 #drinkburgundy

Bruised apple and fruit basket, crystallized honey and toasty nuts underlying the ripe, rich fruit character. Lush and decent acidity to back it up

White pepper sprinkled on ripe white nectarine. Smoked vanilla cream. Full! Full of all the goodness. Still wants more time.
