Aromas of spicy wood, sweet apricots and lychees lead into a wine that is nutmeg-flavored, with a steely minerality lifted with citrus. It’s a complete wine, all the fruity elements there, but given a tight apple skin structure, and the freshest acidity. Screwcap. Imported by Robert Kacher Imports. Editors’ Choice.
The proverbial Burgundian barnyard is on display here. Horsehide and hay are detectable, but are by no means bad or overbearing. The palate is deep and very solid. It’s more country-style than refined, which makes it well suited to casual drinking. Will benefit from a couple of years of bottle age.
The village of Saint-Romain is a great source of good value whites, like this fresh, creamy wine, with its new wood flavors and lime acidity. It’s rounded, but certainly not heavy, with a caramel aftertaste.
Starting with green acidity, this wine opens up well to give cool lemon and mineral flavors. These are followed by a creamy texture that softens the acidity, giving a ripe, full finish.
A citrus-dominated wine, lime and lemon giving a crisp intensity. There is a somewhat bitter toast element, but the acidity, the fresh fruits and the soft structure act as a counter-balance. Give it six months to a year. Screwcap.
