  • Fascinating wine that really speaks of its region. Not a lot showing on the nose, but the medium bodied palate is alive with a lemon based acidity, with classic chardonnay notes at the front of the mouth before the lemon notes hit at the end. There is a touch of oxidation as well. Definitely better as it approached room temperature. Next time I will give it the 3-4 hour decant suggested on the label (A-).

  • Offputting nose of well-used gym socks accentuated by my new Grasl burgundy bowls. Very lemony and sherryish on the palate, and lacked acidity. To be fair, others enjoyed it more than I did.

  • Clear light yellow. Very terroir driven dry lemon lime fruit nose. Super dry mineral and citrus flavours with a slightly oxidized dry lemon flavour.

  • Vic's. The previous posters comments pretty much nailed this superb wine. The fruit's sexy and acidity adds perfect tension. Probably the best Bourdy chardonnay I've had and it even convinced a Jura-hater to reconsider his stance.

  • This has been open for an hour and a half. The aromas are quite pretty, with some nutty oxidized thing, but also lots of rocks and spicy minerality. Hot rocks, stones, flint. I absolutely love the aroma. My kind of minerality. All that plus tax on the palate, with all those flavors present. The texture is also very viscous, yet the whole time its in the mouth it has this really cutting acidity that's fantastic. So great tension between that lovingly soft texture and the mineral streak. The flavors are impressive, but that tension is what's so compelling that's so unique about this beauty. You swallow and you get this nice almond skin note with a wall of minerals, flint, and hot stones covered in a slight lemony acidity. It's like a hike in the alps. You're even left with a sense of the texture on the finish as well. This lingers so beautifully. As we know with Bourdy, this will be a forever ager. This is the finest Bourdy Blanc I've ever had on release. I'll be looking to add more than just my one case I already have.
