Nose has pineapple, tangerine peel, lightly buttered popcorn, lemon zest, green melon slice and cold butter.

Palate has warmed lemon peel, Clementine slice, lightly oxidized apple, cold honey with a long finish, light barrel notes arrive as the wine warms.

A fantastic bottle of Bourgogne Blanc, but not sure it's worthy of the price of admission, even acquired on the secondary market, as I had. Future bottles should enjoy a minimum of a 6-8 year rest, revisit 2026+.

The longer the wine has been open (+4H), the more expressive all of the aforementioned traits become, an absolutely amazing BB.

Some celebratory wines for our wedding anniversary today; 2017 it's the vintage year we got married.

Inarguably from one of Burgundy’s top 3 producers. Here, her fabulous Bourgogne Blanc. Like Coche, drinks well above its level and especially so from 2017. Exceptional balance, energy and intensity. Honeydew melon, crushed stone, a drizzle of wildflower honey and hints of lemon curd. Its depth is outstanding for Bourgogne. A beauty.

It's fine. A bit light as BB should be but I'm expecting more complexity and density given the label and price point.

Strong bouquet of bbq sauce, pineapple, and tangerine, with hints of honeysuckle and lime zest. Notes of blood orange, golden apple, and mango, with hints of dry buttered toast, honeycomb, and gooseberry on the palate. Fragrant, delicious, and interesting for a chard! Good buy for a white burgundy.

Honey and pineapple. Everything in balance. Oak completely integrated. Amazing depth for Bourgogne and perfect with grilled lobster.
