Let me get two things out of the way to start with:
- 2017 is a great vintage for white burgundy
- I also loved and highly recommended this wine in my December 2018 report for subscribers:
A relatively new contract since 2015. It needed some work to sell to regular clients but now is starting to go very well. 30% new oak again.
A vibrant nose – fresh, mineral and cut with citrus – yes! More density, more depth – ooh this great! Mineral, concentrated and beautifully pure – I could drink this every day – bravo!
But 98 points for a village? On the positive side, whoever reviewed this wine can indeed spot a great wine in its segment, but on the other hand, they render any scoring system completely meaningless – or perhaps, as Clive Coates once said, “Scores are in context!“…
