TASTING NOTES:

The nose is elegant and develops aromas of vanilla and fruit with subtle, well-integrated oak. Mineral and nervous, this wine boasts a very pleasant finish.

CRITICS REVIEWS:

"Cask sample. Very neat and impressive on the nose. Precise, crystalline bright fruit that's not as sweet as Mâconnais Chardonnay and with less obvious oak influence than many Côte d'Or whites. A floral note, some lemon flavour, and a little grip on the finish. Very open and easy to like."

16.5/20 points, jancisrobinson.com January 2021

"Well-marked by new oak, this white offers plenty of peach and lemon flavors to match the vanilla and butterscotch notes. Balanced and creamy in the end, with a long finish"

90/100 points, Wine Spectator, 2021
