This is a superb white Burgundy, purchased for a song in one of Premier Cru's excellent sales. Elegant nose and flavors of hazelnuts, minerals, pears, fragrant hay, sweet citrus, and spicy oak. Impeccable balance, long finish. There is not a better Chardonnay in the world for $15 (of course, this one would normally run at least two or three times that!). - HK 2001-10-28
