This is one of those definitive White Burgundies that make it clear why the region is so famous and so coveted. The nose intrigues immediately with smoke and flint. The palate brings in creamy freshness, round and rich, balanced by bright lemon. Wine Enthusiast notes, “It shows lovely balance, with both energy and that lemony roundness. The finish is taut, dry and lasting, leaving an impression of limestone.” It’s the limestone soils that define the terroir, and this beauty captures that perfectly.

Wine Enthusiast

Smoke and a little flinty reduction create a promising nose on this wine. The palate comes in with creamy freshness and an expanse of yeasty, rounded richness, pervaded by bright lemon juiciness. It shows lovely balance, with both energy and that lemony roundness. The finish is taut, dry and lasting, leaving an impression of limestone.
