...really lovely...bouquet is pure...wafting from the glass in a blend of white peach, apple, a hint of the honeycomb to come with bottle age, chalky minerality, beeswax and just a whisper of vanillin oak...deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a lovely touch of salinity to the mineral expression here...focused, beautifully balanced and racy on the backend, with excellent length and grip.

...tropical-tinged bouquet with hints of dried pineapple and peach skin, a melted wax scent lurking just behind...palate is waxy on the entry...with admirable depth and with just a tang of ginger on the controlled finish.

Quite light nose and very lively and elegant. Quite delicate really, with real finesse... Long.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Beaune

Beaune is the heart, soul and capital of Burgundy. A walled, medieval city of ancient buildings and cobble-stoned streets, Beaune is home to the annual Hospices de Beaune wine auction, a charity auction dating to the 15th century. Beaune has always been a natural crossroads, and it was a commercial center as far back as the Roman era. Today Beaune is home to many of Burgundy’s most famous negociants, including Drouhin, Jadot, Latour and Bouchard Pere et Fils. The Beaune appellation includes 1,620 acres of vineyards, of which 95% are planted to Pinot Noir, with the remainder to Chardonnay. Although there are no Grands Crus, there are 44 Premier Cru vineyards which account for nearly half the appellation’s vineyard acreage. The best vineyards are on the upper slopes around the town, and Beaune is especially known for its “clos,” or small, walled vineyards that are often parcels of larger vineyards. There are also Beaune village wines. Robert M. Parker Jr. wrote that the primary traits of Beaune reds in the best vintages are “an intense bouquet of berry fruit, principally black cherries and strawberries. The wines are rarely massive or large scaled, relying more on their smooth, silky, berry fruitiness and harmony to seduce…”


White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
