Two Fine Bottles Of Chardonnay

2020 Côte de Beaune Les Pierres Blanches, Domaine de la Vougeraie
A deep, spicy nose with notes of peach, oranges, butter cookies and smoke. Very fine.
The taste is young and creamy with notes of tangerines, melted butter, chives and brioche. Long and fine, 5+ years.
92p   (tasted 2023/12)

2019 Chardonnay, Mount Eden
A deep, intense nose with notes of cap gun smoke, blood oranges, yellow flowers, sweet minerals and hay. Very complex and fine.
The taste is tight and focused with rich yellow fruits, a gorgeous balance, lip smacking acidity and a long, long finish. Just lovely. 4+ years.
95p   (tasted 2023/12)
