(2017) Though Beaune may be more familiar as a red wine, the appellation covers white wines too, in this case a blend from different Premier Cru parcels matured for around 10 months in oak, about 15% new. Oatmeal and almond toastiness at first, a hint of spice and modest apple fruit. In the mouth very good ripeness, lots of pear and apple, a hint of something orangey to the acidity, then the infill of the spices and wheatmeal and oatmeally oak again. Enjoyable, though perhaps a touch abrupt.
(2017) Fine, fruit-forward stuff with a Prosecco-like charm and easy drinkability. The delicacy of the wine is lovely, the fresh acids gleaming in the finish of a simple but fine first wine of the tasting.
