Lori scored this wine: 95/100

This wine is a beautiful medium amber in colour. It feels full and generous in your mouth. Hints of orange, creme brulee on the nose. Aged 7 years in oak. Tastes like dessert in a glass and would be sufficient to serve as such. 15% vol. Tasted Oct 2019 www.voyagewriters.com

Unusual Wine Experience

Attending the Burgundy Wine School in Beaune, France for a 3 hour lesson. It was very immersive and difficult to only "taste" the myriad of amazing wines instead of "drink" all of them.
