Burghound 91 points. Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru.

It will deliciously fit with...
Wine Advocate 92 points. The 1998 Guiraud is medium gold colored and has quite a toasty/nutty nose with praline and croissant notions over a core of peach preserves, oil skin and white truffle. Mature in the mouth, it sports appealing stone fruit and earthy layers with the richness coming through on the finish. LPB Jun 2018. #SAUTERNES
Wine Advocate 95. The 2016 Guiraud has a pale lemon color and opens with musk perfume, paraffin, cedar and spice box notes with a core of lemon tart, honey-drizzled white peaches and kumquat plus a waft of quince paste. The palate has beautiful vibrancy and loads of lively tropical and spicy layers, finishing very long. LPB Mar 2019. #SAUTERNES
"There is a bit more typicity present on the more floral aromas of apple confit, lemon rind and shellfish-scented nose. There is again fine volume and mid-palate density to the delicious and vibrant medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a markedly dry but not really austere finale." Burghound 91/100 Nov 2020 Oh this is lovely! The finest 1er Cru in Chablis. The vines of this 1 ha vineyard plot are over 60 years old - all hand harvested and fermented purely in tank and then aged in tank for a further 16 months. A yield of only 33hl/ha has resulted in a wine of great intensity. WINERY NOTES: Grape: 100% Chardonnay. Harvest period: End of...
"This is also quite aromatically pretty with its layered array of citrus, white orchard fruit, quinine and a whiff of tidal pool. The rich and generously proportioned medium weight flavors possess a refreshing salinity while exhibiting good length if only average depth on the balanced finale." Burghound 90/100 Nov 2020 Grape: 100% Chardonnay. Harvest period: End of Sept, Early Oct. Age : 60 years old by Massale Selection. Exposure: South-East. Ground: Clay and limestone.

Next Vintage of Burnt Ends 2017 pour... Winery tasting note: The color is pale gold with reflections of emerald, a perfection of finesse and purity that flourishes over time, we find notes of menthol, liquorice against the backdrop of this iodized mineral very characteristic of the great Chablis wines. Drink it over the next five to ten years. "Somewhat unusually, here the nose is actually quite similar to that of the La Forêt but with slightly better layering. Otherwise there is terrific intensity to the firm, racy and overtly mineral-driven flavors that possess excellent size, weight and mid-palate density, all wrapped in a super-saline...

Clear and brillant, mineral and floral, fresh and vigorous. Its aromatic expression features notes of smoky gunflint and hazelnuts. Justin Girardin. In old French 'bievaux' means 'beautiful valley'. Historically this land was reputed to produce excellent white wines but, after the destruction of the vineyards by the Phylloxera pest, this hillside was left abandoned. In the 1960s a number of vines were replanted and in view of the quality of the resulting wine, the entire hillside was replanted between 1970 and 1986. The slope being steep, the planting was done in terraces. Grape variety Chardonnay Average age of the vines 30 years Maturation...
WINERY NOTES: Beauroy is a south facing 1er Cru. This aspect allows it to receive more sunlight than any of our other vineyards. The wine is always rich and concentrated with ripe fruit flavors. We don't make it every year but the warm vintage presented us with great fruit from the site. In 2018 we kept more freshness and acidity in the wine. This has given a nice balance to the Beauroy and a long finish. Aged 50% in barrels and 50% stainless steel tank for 12 months.

Jancis Robinson 18/20. Sweet spices, chalk and steel on the palate with delicious umami complexity on the mid-palate. Full and lengthy, and shows that Chablis can be taken as seriously as any top burgundy. Still very young, and will go on to even greater things. (RH) Drink 2022– 2032. Wine Advocate 93 points. The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros is showing nicely, unwinding in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, nutmeg, sweet orchard fruit and struck match that are deftly patinated by new oak. Medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, it's fleshy, open but precise, with tangy acids and a nicely defined, mouthwatering finish. This is a...

Tim Atkin 91 points. Lovely on the nose, the wine Reveals scents of ripe, almost candied, fruit. These exotic aromas continue and are coated on the palate by a rich body which carries through into a full, very long finish. WINERY NOTES: A flattering nose, reveals flavors of ripe fruits, also identifiable during Tasting because of the natural concentration of the grapes.
