Burgundian nose from a ripe vintage, ripe fruit, with ML roundness. Citrus and ripe white peach, grapes. Bigger style than usual for this winery. I liked it but was rich and flavor was toasted hazelnuts dusted with vanilla powder and a little caramel butter. The citrus and acidity kept richness in check, round and alot of bass notes. wait and see if this wine settles down and leans out a little. The nice balance of this wine promises good things to come.
This is a real power chard: ripe sweet fruit which has been treated to both new oak and probably quite extensive contact with lees. Well chilled and the freshness and fruit gets a lift and some wonderful hazelnut&browned butter aromas come to life. But the creamlike texture and heavy body detracts as the wine warms in the glass.
Given how impressed I have been with other wines from this winemaker, I would suggest to keep this for a couple of years to see if the oak settles and then serve on the cold side.
