Reviews and Ratings

Camelia Bucur rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Domaine de Rochebin Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014 has a nice golden yellow color. The aromas and the flavors are floral, citrusy, and honey. It has a nice balanced of minerality and acidity. Creamy and round on the palate. Enjoy this wine with chicken, fish or pasta.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Vielles Vignes refers to the age of the vines. This is important since after usually nine years a vine tends to produce a much more concentrated grape, but much fewer.
This wine is a simple AC Bourgogne, but there's still lots of good valued wines in this category.
This chard has a lovely deep colour for its age - deep lemon with gold hues.
Slightly smokey aromas. Oats, white flower, mustard seed, lemon, and apple pastry. Carefully aged in barrel to coax out the flavours of the wood, but not to overpower the fruit. It is still somewhat oaky for those who wish to be careful of that.
The flavours are generous and delicious. More apple pastry, butter, and orchard fruit. Smooth and moderate in alcohol. This would go great with poached whitefish with dill.
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine smells amazing. I get butterscotch, apple, lemon and a bit of peach and minerality.
This wine is quite creamy with good acidity and has lots of citrus on the palate, apricot and a hint of oaky caramel/butterscotch. Lovely!
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Minerality, white flowers, honey, and a touch of apple and lemon in the aroma. oily mouth-feel and a taste of white apple and honey. A nice Chardonnay that's not over-done. Pair with creamy pasta
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely straw colour. Soft, creamy palate of yellow apple, citrus, butter and a hint of caramel, nicely balanced acidity and lingering finish. This Chardonnay would be great with pan-fried pickerel or other mild fish.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Golden straw, 12.5% ABV, dominant floral and stone fruit, slight oak presence. Old vines Burgundy Chardonnay 2014 vintage. Balanced, medium fruit, acidity and structure. @jonsteeves rated 88/100 - tasted May 2016
This Burgundian white wine is made from Chardonnay grapes that grow on vines that are more than 100 years old, otherwise known as Vieilles Vignes. Lots of acidity. - Community Wine Reviews
