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

  • The nose conjures up ripe green apple peel, chalk, and sweet spice. The attack is marked by intense fruit and energizing acidity—like biting into a green apple. Later, notable for its creamy, slightly viscous texture. Attractive for layered caramel notes on a lengthy, fruity finish. Nicely balanced. Young and appealing now, but seems likely to improve through 2016.

    Food pairing: Shellfish in cream sauce
