Community Tasting Note

    February 19, 2020 - I bought this from TWS.
    It was 'marketed' as struck match, a feature of white burgundy that I have found appealing in the past.
    This isn't struck match a la Coche Dury.
    It's more like a box of matches exploding at the same time.
    For my palate it's undrinkable at the moment.
    Crisp acidity.
    Once the struck match has worn off we may find some typical chardonnay fruit, but it's well and truly over powered at the moment.
    After a day with no vacuvin but kept in the fridge the overpowering struck match had dissipated. It revealed a nose of wet stone, a creamy palate of stone and fruit with a lovely zip of acidity keeping it all in check. Long finish.
    Keep for a a few years if you have some.
