    Bill, this afternoon I opened the 2017 B-L Blanc. Unfortunately it was oxidized. I expected better, but perhaps they are meant to be consumed in the first couple of years. Otherwise, I’m a victim of premox or poor storage in the past.

      You will know from my many notes that I’m far from a fan of Beaujolais Blanc – consumed in the first couple of years? I’d rather consume something else in 95% of cases/vintages – except to say that 2020 was, generally, a successful vintage for this label. Back to your wine – no chardonnay should be oxidised in 4 years – the seal was clearly at fault with this one – occasionally it is the neck of the bottle that’s to blame as much as the cork or type of cork that has been used…

    Thanks for the response, Bill. I agree with you about the likely cause.
