Some subtle charm. Lemon pith and curd, light spice and floral aromatics. Mouth watering acidity. A touch expensive but decent chard.

At this price point I’ll take a chablis over this wine any time.

Pears, peaches, apricots. Effervescent to taste.

Tasty Bourgogne! Clean and yummy and fairly lean as to be expected.

Nose has lightly grilled lemon, wet limestone, oxidized green apple peel, minor oak char and vanilla creme.

Palate has day-old lemon zest, yellow apple pulp, dried white florals, slight lanolin and dry earth. Mild acidity, just doing wonderful tonight.

Our last bottle of 2016 😢. Paired great with large slabs of Steelhead trout on the grill, toasted orzo with garden herbs and a wonderful salad of microgreens with early lettuces from a local farmer. Our greens likely to be ready in a couple more weeks. 🤤 I really need a full on greenhouse, a cold frame isn't enough!

Simply splendid village Bourgogne, this is a lovely wine that is definitely more complex and rich than expected with appealing notes of vanilla, oak, minerals, hint of tropical fruit and citrus, medium body, smooth, round creamy, delicious fresh finish. Simply elegant and pleasant. My score 89, drink to 2022

Nose has freshly scrubbed lemon, wet limestone (light), green apple peel and vanilla creme.

Palate has lemon zest, watermelon rind, yellow apple pulp, dried white florals and dry earth.

Decanted 2+ hours, needs more time, distinct evolution in our glasses this evening, all towards improvement.

Paired with sous vide scallops with a final pan sear on the stove (rain tonight so no grilling) and fried polenta all rested on top of lettuce/arugula from our garden. (A cold frame in New England is your best friend for early season crops!) Pairing was quite nice, next time with this wine, need a more citrus biased vinaigrette dress on the greens.

A solid QPR buy at $22! 2016 Burgundy, buy and enjoy all you can!

(Update: We sampled the 2017, it's very consistent, buy and enjoy either.)

"Totally hitting the spot" for 'recovery' brunch. Clean & lean with a sunny disposition; chives & tang; great acid, generous & simple mineral texture. On the mark for entry-level Burg.
