Nose has red apple flesh, dried lemon zest, sliced almonds, bag of green apples and undistinguished white flowers.

Palate has oxidized green apple peel, grapefruit pith, minor vanilla, dried apple slices, green herbs with minor salinity, medium acidity and medium finish. (Agree with Tanzer comments about being blurry on mid-palate.)

Decanted 2H.

Sourced from four Beaune 1er Cru vineyard sites: Les Aigrots, Les Tuvilains, Les Sizies and Sur les Grèves.

Just so good! This is what chardonnay wants to grow up and become. The balance of fruit and oak . Yes, Meyer lemon. Minerality (flint), honeysuckle, stone fruits. How nice.
