Reviews and Ratings

Jason Solanki rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intense apple, pear, butter and peach aromas with replays on the palate. Extra dry wine that is medium-bodied and very smooth, with a lengthy finish. Nice!! Tasted Sept/2012.
Holly Bruns rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

There is a big fruitiness on the nose with some tropical banana and coconut balanced out by a little tree fruit and some pleasant acidity. A warm, caramel note finishes things off nicely.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a very good quality/price wine made by a consistently good winery. You can taste the toast of the barrique, but not too much and it makes it a perfect companion for food, especially salmon. Nice and clean robe, pear (not ripe) aromas and pretty long en bouche (4-5 caudalies). An honest companion when you feel like having a great village appellation from Bourgogne but you don't want to pay the price tag to get it.
Brad rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

tight fruit and acidity on the tongue, this wine felt young and somewhat sharp to me, green apple and fresh citrus flavours
