    A blend of flatter clay soil below the village and chalkier soil on the haut coteau. Soft pale golden straw with platinum highlights. This is the perfect balance of purity and freshness with intensity and complexity. Very elegant and refined. Wild fennel, flint smoke, lemonade fruit, grapefruit pith, honey roasted cashew and limestone. Great weight and intensity. This has a gentler structure but is no less pure and mineral. In fact, it sparkles with quartz-like purity right along the palate with a consistent chalky mineral vibration and texture, thanks to the light phenolics. Milky white fruits, ripe citrus, grapefruit pith, wild fennel, cooked apple, bitter almond and custard. Very long even finish. It calls for white burgundy glasses and a creamy dish for it to cut through.

    Region

    The first visit to the hallowed ground of Burgundy is a special one. The region is the high-altar to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and stretches from the outer suburbs of Dijon to Macon in the south at the northern border of Beaujolais. The vivid Chardonnay wines of Chablis are an outlier, situated some 105km to the north-west of Dijon on stark kimmeridgian” limestone. The hallowed ground of the Côte-d'Or is neatly split in two by the town of beaune. To the north lies the Côte de Nuits, home to 24 Grand Cru vineyards; Pinot Noir rules here. To the south of Beaune lies the Côte de Beaune where Chardonnay plays a more dominant role with seven of the eight Grand Cru vineyards producing white wine. Value is to be found further south in the appellations of Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais. Local Knowledge” A meal at Ma Cuisine in Beaune is a must or visit Beaune markets, stock up on provisions and have a picnic at the ‘secret’ picnic table above the famous ‘Cros Parantoux’ vineyard in Vosne-Romanée.
