Disgorged December 2014. Lemon zest, brioche, brown butter, hazelnut and sea salt. Was delicious as soon as opened and still showing beautifully the second day. Was perfectly balanced and just left me wanting more.

Such great value! While I feel doesn't have the Bereche typicity, it's so elegant and poised. Fruiter, more powerful, less mineral, but bolstered by racy acidity.

I think Vinous nails my tasting notes, so I'm just gonna leave that here:

"The 2008 Côte Premier Cru, a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir from Vertus, is striking. Translucent and expressive, the 2008 captures a gorgeous, crystalline expression of Vertus Chardonnay, with a little added body and texture from the Pinot. Sweet floral and honeyed notes wrap around the expressive, precise finish. There is a lot to like here. Dosage is 6 grams/liter."
