Winemaker's Notes

ALWAYS impressive value in white Burgundy. Rich, mouthfilling honeyed flavors, this will stand up to any $30 bottle of Chardonnay, from anywhere.

Fresh slices of Chanterais melon and a bouquet of honeysuckle and jasmine greet the nose of this vibrant mineral cuvée. Sweet on the tongue, with liquid flavors of grapefruit, pear and sparkling glacial water running over crushed stones. Chiseled, lemon-fresh and strikingly pure, this is always a stunning value and a perfect example of the outstanding quality from the noble "rock" of Vergisson.

"Medium chartreuse-green color. Smoky, mineral-accented pear and peach scents are deepened by iodine and toasty lees. Pliant orchard fruits on the palate, with a bitter pear skin quality adding dryness and carrying into the finish. Finishes with firm mineral grip."
-International Wine Cellar

I find this wine to be Trocken. Trocken means the wine is dry. To make a wine dry they usally ferment the grapes until there is not sugar left. So no matter how ripe and sweet the grapes are the wine ends of being dry. I found a hint of green apple in the taste and a strong mineral taste. This wine smells minerals and a light apple smell. I feel that the mineral taste and the wine being to dry isn't something I like. I paired this wine with tequila shrimp and citrus. I feel that any seafood that doesn't have a sweet taste to the palette would be good with this wine. The dryness of this wine would not complement any sweet foods. If you like a dry wine I think you would like this wine.
