Really delicious new world pinot with an old world slant. Tart raspberries, mineral and earth with plenty of zip. Wish I had gallons of this stuff, bravo!

My last bottle and this one was slipping - starting the premox thing. Started off luscious and buttery, then became more linear and precise with citrus and mineral, then fell off the cliff with sherry and roundness. Possibly a bad bottle - first one a year ago was much better.

Drinking great now - lots of funk and complexity for such a humble wine. Should drink well for 5+ years for sure.

Fantastic chard. Salty, minerally and plenty of ripe citrus. Really drinking well with a nice snap.

Pretty solid basic burg and a deal at $20. On the softer end of the spectrum with nice fruit and minerals. Very good.

Interesting wine for sure. Fascinating nose with a myriad of different scents. Palate was not quite as interesting. I wouldn't say this goes head to head with grand white cru burg as I have heard. The only similarity I see was the flinty aromas. No fruit at all. 5 of us drank wine and didn't finish bottle. Unicorn wine? Yes. Would I acquire again? No

Holy crap is this wine spot on. Savory with tingling acidity, darkish fruits, earthy and a total joy to drink - had 2 and sorry to have no more. Great wine.

Textbook bourgogne blanc and hitting on all cylinders now. Seashells, lemon zest and just a hint of burg funk. Delish on this night and a relative bargain at $25 US. Back up the truck....

I first had this wine on a recommendation from somm at a restaurant in Oslo last summer. It was eye opening and absolutely loved it.

When I returned home bought some bottles. First bottle I tried was similar to Lord Rodneys experience on first night. Low and behold second night it returned to the same wine as that night in Oslo. Might be entering a dumb phase? Not sure but have since tried some of their higher echelon wines and I love this domaine.

In my opinion this wine is a screaming deal for $26 US. Maybe open well in advance if drinking now or give it a few years in cellar.

Stunning bottle of wine on this night. Very clean fruit with an earthiness and violets that were just so good together. Really love this producer as they seem to be picking up momentum with each year.
Paired with smoked brisket and red pepper sandwiches - not your conventional pairing but I think anything would be good with this wine. Worth the $ ($60).

Earthy and dry - just a faint hint of underripe fruit but I really like this. Ready to go and should be solid for a while.

Lovely for sure - dry as a bone and so citrusy and lip smacking good.

Opened a bottle to cook with, tried a couple sips - this wine has evolved and is actually quite nice for a scorching hot year and a cheapo. Actually feel like it will improve with a few more years in cellar. Fuller bodied but not over the top.

Another beautiful bottle. This one drank well on P&P but did improve from decanter over 2 hours.

Decanted for 30 minutes and wine was shining. Mature, cherry fruit, earth and haunting nose. Drinking well with air

Really good stuff - a little sweet on initial P&P but quickly morphed into a thing of beauty. On the lighter side but so delicious.

Really a great wine on day 1, faded a bit day 2. Nice acidity, faint fruit, minerals and dry as a bone.

Delicious, no sign of fading in this bottle.

P&P'ed and blinded. Fairly earthy on nose and a little disjointed on palate initially. Slowly gained a lot of big fruit intensity on palate and was clearly new world but definitely leaning towards burgundy influences. Overall I really liked it and is very well made.

97 cork and singing on P&P. Definitely browning at the edges and is mature on nose and palate. Lots of old world funk, mature dark fruit, tannins have resolved. I loved it. Deal at $30 from Envoyer!

Not my cup of tea, has a strange off putting taste for me and seems very boozy for 12.5% all listed. One glass and I am teetering. Maybe an off night for me?

My first bottle also needed about 30 minutes of air to open up then blossomed into a thing of beauty. Perfect for a warm summer evening and paired well with Alsatian pizza and tomato salad. At once rich but plenty of acidity to keep everything in check. Beautiful balance, subtle lemon and fruit and really delicious.

Slightly corked but drinkable. Looking forward to next one....

PnP - a little one dimensional and sweet at this point. Paired with lobster rolls, will let remaining bottles sleep for a while and hope for some complexity to emerge. Note - glasses used were not the best for this wine.

Pretty delicious and a steal at $14. This could be a house pour around my house. Probably best to drink sooner than later while the soft fruit and acidity are still there.

A little softer than your typical Napa cab and enjoyable for what it is - a Napa cab under $30. I like the restrained style and paired with burgers on the grill.

Pretty much shut down and closed for business for night 1 & 2. Fruit is non existent, not sure if there is anything left there but will try again soon.

Not much going on with this wine at the moment. Soft fruit, no tannins and pretty straight forward and simple. Maybe needs more time or maybe this is as good as its going to get? Will hold last bottle for a while....

P&P'ed and enjoyed 2 glasses. I am always leary of natural wines and this one had some of the tell tale features.... but I actually do like it. Very light and delicate but full of spice, earth and faint fruit.
Will see how remainder holds up tomorrow.

Took a few minutes to open up - fruit forward and fairly one dimensional at this point in its evolution, not sure about long term prospects but not bad now. Bottle did disappear.

Awesome wine drinking fantastic now. Earthy and actually quite a bit of ripe fruit and a joy to drink. Garagiste steal at $10.

Great wine after an hour in the decanter. Seems like it could remain in this state for a while. Nice fruit and the usual earthy aromatics that make mature BDX so great.

Sensational Chablis - everything I expect out of the region. Rich, tense, chalky, marine, lemon, balanced - really a strong effort and a deal for $25.

This wine has not changed a bit in last 5 years, same tasting note as then. Old World Loire funk all the way. Love it.
