Crazy burgundy kick. More restrained and oak lite than I thought. Pineapple cake sure but more herbal than anything. Finish is clean not obnoxious. Cool.

For the night I'd say this #chardonnay was average but a nice way to start a meal. #wine #burgundy

2009 - brilliant & precise - a whole lot of stuff here without being overblown. Just starting to blossom out at six years.

Absolutely brilliant stuff. Lemon, lime, stones, minerals -- it's all there. Drinking well yet will improve for years. Bravo performance from an only decent vintage

Close to perfect. Green apple, pear, citrus fruit. Delicious.

I keep finding the Girardin style to be very restrained which I can very much appreciate and all the right character is there but I just feel like there is a magic in going over the top that I just never find here. I did enjoy this quite a bit but I would be hunting for a different producer in Folatieres. What can be done at the site that I have seen is remarkable. Not docking this for being on point though.

Not much for the first 30 minutes. But then blossomed beautifully
