Solid. Pear and apple, spice, some baked apples, nice freshness. One note and it does it well but it lacks some energy.

Signature aroma of apple blossoms. However, there’s a diffuse sort of soupy thing on the palate that gives the impression of very high yields. Were this négociant Mâcon, I’d give it high marks; but given that this is a pioneer of estate bottling in this region, I’m not as impressed.

Under ripened orchard fruit, lemons, and white flowers on nose and palate. Medium- complexity. Elevated and racy acidity added a lot of movement and texture to wine. Lacked fruit in mid-palate to balance everything. Fine finish. #thevenet #chardonnay #mâcon #ctbucklinwine

Delicious with lots honeyed apple and fruit. Easy and approachable with good richness. Great value for an area where it's increasingly rare.
