Community Tasting Notes (average 89.8 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 17 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by cos65 on 4/23/2015: Bright crisp green apple with a slight buttery finish (122 views)
 Tasted by cos65 on 9/18/2014: Very fresh white grape flavors. Very easy drinking, not overly crisp, but very nice. (716 views)
 Tasted by cos65 on 8/16/2014: Plastic cork, quite stuck it there...
Pale straw, fairly light, crisp, pleasant and easy without a ton of bright fruit. (773 views)
 Tasted by Alvinho on 12/10/2013 & rated 88 points: Paired salmon in crispy cover with risotto al limone. (1627 views)
 Tasted by FransS on 8/28/2013 & rated 91 points: Once again (see my previous notes) (nearly) as good as the previous bottle. (1883 views)
 Tasted by FransS on 8/12/2013 & rated 92 points: I bought a carton of 6 at Olivier on my trip to the Côte d'Azur and I enjoyed some bottles there. Fabulous wine somewhat common in style with Dauvissat. See my previous notes. (1836 views)
 Tasted by alabunka on 3/3/2013 & rated 90 points: drinking well now - citrus and apple with very little oak - very nice but a bit underwhelming; the plastic cork required two different corkscrews to open it... (1657 views)
 Tasted by Champagneinhand on 1/30/2013 & rated 92 points: Just sensational. Weird plastic/air filled cork, but the wine is exuberant. Plenty of acid and mineral. The acid shows in the form of lime and is mixed with guava and a bit of lychee. This is apparent on the nose, but very delicate and elegant. Best white Burg at 12%ABV for 2009 and just $22. I will seek out more soon. Greatly complimented shrimp scampi. (2274 views)
 Tasted by FransS on 7/21/2012 & rated 93 points: See my previous note; again sensational. (1702 views)
 Tasted by FransS on 3/27/2012 & rated 92 points: Again a lovely bottle; a wine with zest, elegance and balance. (1690 views)
 Tasted by FransS on 1/17/2012 & rated 93 points: Sensational, really, everything in balance. So smooth, so lively, so fresh, so precise, you want to
sip this wine on and on. (1786 views)
 Tasted by hutch on 2/10/2011 & rated 89 points: Wildman 2009 Burg Tour (Boston): Bright, clean aromatics. Intense. Almost piercing. Bright Chablis. Good. 88-90 ($25) (2428 views)

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
