JS nails it...the oak is VERY subdued, which allows the wildly interesting and fun fruit/mineral flavors to have their say.
I will be getting more of this.
Lovely wine; makes me proud to be a local.
Apple and butter aromas with lots of minerality shining through. On the palate there is more minerality with citrus notes and lively acidity at mid-palate. Oak is very well integrated. Tasted Sept/2012.
Generous notes of golden delicious apple, stonefruits, roast walnut, sweet spice and cardamom. There’s a medium-full bodied, creamy texture that has minerality and acidity for some vibrancy. The refinement, balance and length are all premium qualities.
Medium+ straw in colour with a medium to medium+ nose.
Well balanced & made in the Mâcon style.
Positives: Oak is well integrated and features white roses, mandarin, grapefruit, verbena, fennel, lemon grass, lemon rind, green apples, pear and limestone. Medium body with above average acidity for a Chard and a very long length. Don't over chill.
Negatives: A touch too sour on the finish for me.
Interesting Notes: I used the large warmer or Meursault style Chard glass and the smaller traditional Chard glass and each one were slightly different and I couldn’t decide which one I liked best.
Drink now on or over the next 5 years on its own or pair it with creamy seafood risotto.

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4
Lemony straw colour with hints of green. A hint of smoky oak on the nose with some lovely appley, nutty, and minerally aromas to accompany. Lively acidity on the palate. Drink now through 2018.
