Light ruby colour. Spritzig.
Slightly syrawberry jam like but not annoyingly so. Quite vivacious. Fresh.
Flavoursome. Bit too oaky for me but that is true to the Montrachet style. Good wine.
Chablis, Burgundy. 13%. Diam.
Good fine Chablis. Quite rich. Without the piercing acidity of some lessor Chablis.
Reminded me of top class cool climate Australian chardonnay – which says how far Australia has come recently.
There is some off-putting Brett on the nose, in fact nothing really to attract, but the palate is a revelation. Good core of ripe fruit. Acidity in balance.
Drinking well with perhaps 10 years ahead of it still.
Beaune, Burgundy. 13%
Very enjoyable aged burgundy. Lovely relaxed style. But not profound.
Golden colour very developed.
Oatmeal creamy texture but dilute wine lacking acid, alcohol. Flavour of oak still.
