Medium-high intensity aromas that are elegant, with very nice nutty, butter, golden apple and pear on the nose. It's light-to-medium weighted with bright, crisp acids and nice stone fruit aroma replays. Nicely balanced overall, with a finish length that is very long with hints of minerality. Tasted May/2017.

What a great price for a 1er Cru white Burgundy. The first thing I noticed is the oak; caramel and baking spices, particularly cinnamon. However, it’s very well integrated and it doesn’t overshadow the rest of what’s going on in this glass. The fruit is on the ripe/tart spectrum with pronounced yellow apple, pink grapefruit, and orange zest, with some almond nuttiness. As well, there is the very classic Burgundian lees with cremini mushrooms and a wet stone minerality. I would wait 2 years and pair with a grilled pork chop, mushroom cream sauce, and some blanched asparagus. Tasted May 2018
