Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An elegant nose of vanilla, lemon twist and buttered toast, followed by a refined palate that adds hazelnut and marzipan. Crisp, squeaky dry and balanced.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This medium-bodied Premier Cru is an elegant expression of Old World Burgundy winemaking. Elegance prevails throughout in this pretty floral and peach Chardonnay(Chablis). Perfect amount of cleansing acidity while oak aging is evident but reserved. Long length on a warm creamy finish. Good value for 1er Cru at $36. Makes an excellent gift. Potential for aging. Pair with Christmas turkey and impress the in-laws.
Tasted: October 2015
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Priya: well, on the up side it doesn't have that funky barnyard smell I associate with Burgundy wines. Maybe that's because it's a white wine. It does have a faint whiff of the mould that builds on cheese, and also of black olive tapenade. "It's a riper style" says Alex, that explains why I rather like it. has a fruity, slightly nutty flavor. A bit floral as well. I wonder how it would be with food? 88 pts.

Alex: My lady it would be excellent with food, and particularily so with chuck of simple baked Chilean sea bass drizzled with olive oil and sea salt. Wow. Can see this being excellent with alfredo pasta as well. It's indeed a lush, ripe style, with yellow apple and bosc pear, bordering on just-ripe pineapple. Caramel accents as well, the oak is there but well integrated. Full-bodied, decadent creamy texture with enough acidity and minerality to keep it from being too heavy. Good length, and don't serve too cold, 11-13 degrees celsius is ideal here. 88 pts
This winery's vineyards are planted in the estate's best plots and are eco-farmed. Bottled with light filtration, so there could be a small dsposit of sediment.
