    June 26, 2022 - I just absolutely love this. It’s so rare to have a premier cru at a decent price point that drinks well young but doesn't taste like it’s been artificially accelerated. The blending here is wizardry. It’s relatively soft and round, and not tremendously complex, but wow it drinks well and has class to make up for the lack of complexity. Fantastic.

    March 18, 2022 - Aromas of hazelnut, mineral, banana and hint of citrus. Flavors of hazelnut, shortbread, mineral and slate. Ends with a 20-25 second finish with mineral and shortbread notes. Drinking quite well.

    February 14, 2022 - A sort of entry level 1er Cru Blanc from Bouchard Pere et Fils with the fruit coming from 5 different Cru sites. Beeswax, orchard fruits, white flowers, ground almond and a touch of creamy oak emerge on the nose. The palate is fresh and elegant with some nicely defined fruit, a touch of minerality along with good texture and plenty of zip and verve. Unfortunately the simplistic and somewhat one dimensional finish lets it down, ending clipped and a little short. A decent wine in 2017 but not quite there.

    January 22, 2022 - A nice balance of mineral and complex yellow fruit-chartenais stands out. Time to restock to have for when want reasonably priced, better than typical white burgundy.

    January 16, 2022 - Pale gold

    Nose: white flower, crushed slate, peach, light butter tones.

    Mouth: Silken white peach, golden apple, are given a touch of honey and elderflower as they glide through together. The oak is polished to a sheen, giving a frictionless frame to the overall package. Finish dries out and lengthens everything just a bit, introducing some light crushed seashell and liquid butter tinges to close out.

    Overall: Weighty, but never overladen, this shows finesse via seamless, silken palate action. Harmonious, and dynamic, with elegant little flourishes that introduce themselves over time. A balanced overall package. Drink now - 2025.

    91.
