This is powerful and heady yet integrated so that the layers of nutty flavor, from green almond to fragrant almond oil, come together in a marzipan-scented finish. The undertow is cool and fresh, drawing the toasty richness and smoky lees into lasting focus.
J. Moreau & Fils Reviews
A fifth of this wine finishes its fermentation in barrels, a move that points up the richness in flavors of chanterelles and puff pastry. Those notes are lifted by floral, gingery spice, their open, nutty intensity harking back to a time when producers in Burgundy were less worried about touches of oxidation in their white wines. A pleasure to drink now, this lasts long after each sip, infusing the breath with its elegant flavors.
