STUNNING WHITE BURGUNDY - Lustrous and pale gold in color, this remarkable Bourgogne Blanc offers rich aromas of apple and orange, with just enough butter and toast to reveal the partial oak-aging in this 100% chardonnay. A more robust body offers notes of yellow apple, kiwi, starfruit, lemon zest, vanilla, and almonds. Whereas the Southern Burgundy summer temperatures give life to tones of riper fruit, the acidity goes mostly undefeated by the warmer climate, remaining bright and strong. The region’s soil, richer in clay, produces wonderful minerality that in part with its zesty acid, pave a lengthy and slate-driven finish. Well balanced, both zesty and somewhat creamy. Enjoy slightly-chilled with stuffed crab shells, white meat, or as a before dinner drink.
