His has a bit more oak which is probably explains the ratings but I like it.

Great value - a little dessert-y; creme brûlée, perfect pear and yellow apple. Very picturesque. Tastes like paintings in children’s books: hyper realistic, over saturated colors, a princess and a puppy. This is just begging to be put with a cheese plate.

Passable by the glass Chablis, some flab, a tad woody. I suggest a food pairing--maybe shellfish. Not a fantastic stand alone wine.

Light golden color with aromas of stone fruit and raisins. On the palate sweet grape flavors with walnuts, black pepper and vanilla notes. On the finish the wine was balanced and ended with a good dose of minerality, medium in length.
