Somewhat rustic yet round and balanced, and with a mineral lemon taste, this Chardonnay Village is quick and firm in its youth and develops a smoother and more supple feel over time. Another fine white Burgundy for casual occasions.

  • Scents of hay and pear blossom and distant toasty hints mix with more perfumed, floral scents (acacia) for a complex nose that sends the mind searching for adjectives. Shows lovely poise on the palate, balanced between a fruity, rich mouthfeel and crisp, persistent acidity apparent behind the fruit and through to a lingering, acid-dominated finish with the most delicate of slightly grippy tannins. Still young, but this wine has the structure to suggest it will reward cellaring.

    Food pairing: oysters, other shellfish, fish, pasta with light cream sauce, asparagus risotto
