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.

Critical Acclaim

"Hazy yellow-gold. Intriguing pungent aromas of pear skin, orange, smoky lees and iodine, plus a strong mineral undertone. Chewy orchard and citrus fruit flavors show impressive depth and are accented by bitter almond, anise and floral honey notes. Reminds me a lot of a wine from Coche-Dury, with strong iodine, smoke and bitter orange qualities defining the finish."
