    This is a fabulous little secret in our Burgundy portfolio! The fruit presents itself in a very elegant manner, and laced through the great structure there's a lovely little line of minerality, sort of like granite. As the wine warmed up a little bit, I started to get more lime zest and juicy citrus notes. This is a serious little bottle, showing great complexity that is not often found at this price point. Serve with any seafood or white pasta dish for a great time!

    This is a sensational value! Pure, fresh Chardonnay fruit is packed in here with aromas showing a mix of citrus, melon, stone fruit and white flowers. The flavor is scrumptious, the acidity is zingy and the finish lounges on my palate. Can white Burgundy in this price range be this good? OUI! Load up the car and take home as much as you can before I drink it all.

    If you love a crisp, clean, and vivacious Chardonnay, then you simply must try this delightful 2017. Its approach is linear and focused, but then quickly expands, offering rounded edges and a plush mouthfeel. An array of green apple, lemon, a Bartlett pear grab your attention and hold onto to it. A bright and palate-cleansing finish rounds things out wonderfully—ending with a subtle tingle of acidity. This is a lot of wine for the price. Stock up and drink this charmer over the next five years, and you'll be a happy camper indeed.

    This pretty white Burgundy arrived just in time for warm autumn days! Clean, crisp, fresh, packed with bright mineral notes and supple flavors of pear D'Anjou, Golden Delicious apple with juicy citrusy finish. For the price it's unbelievable and over-delivers for sure!

    What a beautiful wine! Aromas of orchard fruits and freshly squeezed Meyer Lemons spring from the glass. The palate is lively with intense citrus and green apple flavors as well as notes of iodine and dried hay. The length here is quite impressive with a finish that lingers on the palate as the lemon notes slowly fade away. This is a stunning value and should be bought by the case.
    Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2022
