Straight up one of the very best Bourgogne Blancs I’ve had for $37.99 and higher.

Again, drinks like a well made 1st Cru Meursault.

This caught on with a few of the right palates in NYC not long ago. It won’t stay at this price...grab what you can now. Especially, with 25% tariffs on newer vintages.

2015, 2016 & 2017 all very good.

Previous notes will work.

I’ll let my previous notes of weeks ago stand.

However, if you like white burgundy & can find some of their 2015-17, you owe it to yourself to order some of Pierre Boisson Bourgogne Blanc at $37.99.

Drinks like a well made Meursault and makes many elite Ca Chardonnays pale in comparison.

It has purity of fruit & minerality...not crushed in new oak and ABV burn.

You can spend $75 to $200 for elite Ca Chardonnay, I’ll take this over those any day.

One of the very best Bourgogne Blancs I’ve had. A steal at $39.99 when you price Burgundy.

Lemon, lime candy/zest, pineapple, stone fruit, caramel notes, beautiful white spice, excellent viscosity, cream, buttery quality, honeysuckle, vanillin, powdery chalkiness, sea fossils, great volcanics touch of fresh herbs, limestone minerals, yellow lilies, fruit blossoms and spring flowers. The acidity is magnificent. The round, lush, well balanced, elegant & polished finish is gentle and persistent for minutes.

I will take this wine and its style over than ANY CA Chardonnay I’ve had!

Pierre Boisson is really bringing it. The Bourgogne’s 15-17 all drink like a more expensive Meursault. Their wines will be rising in price. Buy all you can now.

Slightly over chill & decant for a better experience.

Happy Birthday America & Cheers! 🇺🇸 🧨

We tried the 2017 last weekend. It was really good. I said, it needed a couple years in bottle. After having the 2015 tonight, I would say it’s better but, like this 15 it still needs a couple more years to flush out to its best form.

I like this rising Burgundian producer & new to me. For $39, it overachieves & drinks better than many more expensive CA Chardonnays. As I mentioned in my 2017 post, this producer uses a shade more new wood than is typical for White Burgundy...it has a little backbone.

The nose reveals; sour lemons, green apple with skin, lime zest to candy, overripe pineapple, under ripe, green melon, white peach, peach, apricot, kiwi, guava, cream, brown butter, white spice, limestone, chalky grains in powder, caramel notes, butterscotch candy, dry herbs, honey/honeycomb quality, grey volcanics, fruit blooms, jasmine, yellow lilies & spring flowers.

The body is; full, round, waxy, slightly gluey with nice viscosity. This also drinks like a nice Meursault. Sour lemons, green apple with extra skin, lime zest to candy, overripe pineapple, under ripe, green melon, white peach, peach, apricot, kiwi, guava, cream, brown butter, white spice, limestone, chalky grains in powder, wet some, flintiness, slightly, metallic minerals, caramel notes, butterscotch candy, dry herbs, honey/honeycomb quality, grey volcanics, fruit blooms, jasmine, yellow lilies & spring flowers. The acidity round, phat and well executed. The finish is; well balanced, nicely knitted, lush, rich, polished and lingers on for minutes ending in grippy chalkiness & minerals.

Needs to be decanted & enjoyed around 60 degrees.

@Shay A Maybe, your next producer introduction? Have to work that out.

Strong minerals up front - lemon finish. Great with some shrimp risotto
