Saline, medium body, moderate complexity, dry finish. Overpaid for it, would get agai

A very nice typical bourgogne. Nothing flashy, the fruit is fading quickly. Dry finish. Might get it again if it's available, but in a younger vintage.

Seems that many have tasted it in the last week and have found plenty of fruit and a rich experience. Perhaps my bottle is somewhat tainted, but it was dry very thin on the nose, minimal fruit in the glass but not excessively tannic on the Finish. It just did not have the fullness and pleasure I associate with even a casual Rioja

Drinking well, Jami and nice. Not much sophistication or acid. A good cocktail wine may not have enough stuff to stand up to a red meat dinner. Would definitely get it again.

It has come apart at this time. Light, unbalanced, acidity too firm.

Really lovely, still fruit centric and nicely balanced. A great sipper but not as much strength and acid to really stand up to full flavored or fatty foods

Soft and fruit forward, not enough acid for my taste to give it brightness. Not overly Citrus, a fine readily accessible wine

I found this to have become somewhat harsh and disjointed. It does not have any of the connection and smoothness that it had several years ago when I first tried it.

Three 60, not going to carry it in the future, distributor lost the account. Among my favorites. Light, nuanced and full mouth feel to be interesting and repeatable. Not very citrus. Great sipper.

too much oak and "fattness" for me. Found it heavy and dense for my style. Preferred others more in the price range

I liked it very much, the second night was a little more tart some of the fruit had vanished. Refined long finish. would buy it again

No longer fresh, but still very dense chewy and packed with rich black fruit flavors. Wish I had more.

Thewine is drinking much better now that five or six years ago when I tried it. I thought it was really way too harsh and unappealing so I waited and it is come together nicely. I know the goal is to make a Chablis Style wine, but this has got more citrus than Stone, and more lime than limestone. It's still very interesting and Light, flavorful and refreshing. Glad I have, a couple more bottles to open over the next year or so

Best St Aubin I have had this year. Very clean and luxurious flavors with deep and pleasing duration, salinity rather than chiton, but lifting and not citrus on the finish. Not lush or overly fruity, or too creamy like a Meursault.

Kind of a kick, a white burgundy from Nuits-saint-georges. Not chardonnay but Pinot Blanc. Napa chardonnay butter Pinot Blanc. Map of Chardonnay but a Pinot Blanc. Light nose, and mostly mineral good body, deep lingering flavors, slightly citrus. I kept thinking I was drinking something from the loire Valley. Rather expensive for a rare and not quite On Target wine, but I guess every once awhile one has to say I had a white burgundy from the famous red Burgundy domain

very strong and intense with lingering flavors, unfortunately too citris for me, not much minerality or flower, unoaked SS fermented. better cold and then becomes almost sour to my palate, would not repeat based on style. 90 based on the length of finish.

a very nice village level wine at a reasonable price. Not as full flavored as the producers Puligny version of the same vintage, a bit less complex and a more citric back mouth and finish. Better when chilled, becomes more astringent with warmth and on the second day. Lingering flavors, not too fruity, and more chablis like than lush, but not the deep mineral flavors and overtones. Enjoyed it very much

Superficial, perfumed nose, candied flavors. An accessible wine, but not the depth and subtlety I was looking for.

Good experience with this after working through many other white burgundies. Refined with great initial mouthfeel, on the dry side, bright and active, good lingering taste. A bit on the citric side for me, but well balanced and a good option for the future.

Medium bodied light finish wonderful knows of cherry and Cola, similar flavors on the taste good Midtown sensations shortage finish it. It seems contradictory that the wine is light but still has a full flavor and is very pleasant.

Wonderful example of what California can do when it attempts to be more like a burgundy and less like toasted creamy vanilla syrup. It has elements of Chablis with crisp dry towels, moderate citrus, but a very full flavor and finish. It cleans the palate rather than clinging to it. It is not as complex as others in its class and is relatively simple for the price, but absolutely Flawless and it opens up and becomes even Fuller as it warms. Liked it a lot

Very pleasant medium-bodied Pinot Noir. Some Cola elements and good structure on the back end. Not overly Rudy. Good balance for food.

Tasted like hints of the real thing, but too thin and watery to really tell. An inexpensive pour for non discerning captive acquaintances.

too acidic and not balanced with fruit to offset. Understand why it is primarily a blending wine or mixed for Kir

Light and pleasing Pinot Noir from Oregon. Slight aromas of fruit, cherry flavored with some deeper tones like cranberry, no particular tannins medium light finish. A good warm weather Pinot Noir, perfect for a cold day in Florida.

some warmth and flavor, but tart, even for the varietal. OK as occasional daily pour.

Simple and uncomplicated example of the region. Not layered or complex, more oak than fruit can sustain, and acid finish. Good Plank

Had forgotten about this bottle, so opened it up. The fruit is gone, mostly, but still medium body, a bit too much tannin for me, tight short finish. Clearly over the hill, but pleasant for a casual drink with pizza.

Vanilla and mild fruit, and light oak, thick mouth feel, and not too complex. The good chard for daily quaff, no flaws, no thrills, price a bit extravagant.
