A freebie after spending €400+ with Dad at the wine shop in Meursault. This is apparently from the border of I think Puligny-Montrachet, and the shopkeeper strongly recommended it. Coming into maturity, I could see why, as it was a quite ripe style, good quality white Burgundy. Mid gold colour. Initially muted, then opened into ripe pear and peach, butterscotch and cream. On the palate, much more powerful from the off with ripe pear & peach, and creamy, buttery notes again. Rich and soft, but with minerally dryness. Not hugely crisp, but just enough acidity to hold in balance. Only medium length, but enough to be enjoyable.
