2013 Bouard-Bonnefoy ?Les Vergers? Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
I understand low-sulfur so I thought I?d beat the premox. Sweet ripe pear, some oak and butter, big. Doesn?t have the minerality I was hoping for. B-

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
