 Tasted by Derek Darth Taster on 5/19/2014 & rated 88 points: Drank at dinner with Ed at Fullerton Pier.
Appearance is clear, pale intensity, lemon colour. Short legs seen.
Nose is clean, medium intensity, with aromas of green pear, stony/flint minerality, steel, and interestingly grass. Youthful.
On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium- alcohol, medium- body. Medium flavor intensity, with flavours of green pear, lime, stony minerality, chalk, grass, and a bit of bitterness towards the finish. Medium- finish.
Infinitely quaffable. Performs well as a village level Chablis from a less ripe vintage. Much better than a lot of plonky village level Chablis in the market. Very good quality. Drink now while fresh, not for further ageing. (468 views)
 Tasted by Bam_Man on 4/15/2014 & rated 88 points: Pale in color, with a pretty, reticent nose of floral and citrus notes. Bright and crisp on the palate. Lots of citrus, pear and kiwi fruit character, along with a fresh acidity. Subtle hints of grass and chalk emerge on the dry finish. Could easily be mistaken for a New World Sauvignon Blanc if tasted blind. A good summertime quaffer, this paired very nicely with our shrimp and scallop stir fry.

 Tasted by Reptibark on 2/19/2013 & rated 88 points: The nose is very rich and fruity with the absence of traditional Chablis notes of flint but the palate is the opposite; very flinty, chalky and brine like with the addition of oyster shells and crushed rocks. (291 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.
