Grapes

Chardonnay : 100 %

A light and fruity Chardonnay, this has a softness that’s akin to creamed apple and ripe melon. The orange-zest-like acidity adds to the feel of this open, ready-to-drink wine.

Fine balance sets the stage for the apple, lemon and mineral flavors in this white. Stays focused, with the vibrant structure framing the finish. Drink now through 2014. 10,000 cases imported. –BS

(the fruit for this comes 70 % from Puligny and 30 % from Meursault). A pretty citrus and green fruit nose combines with detailed, racy, intense and crisp flavors that possess an attractive sens of energy before ending in a delicious finish of moderate depth.

The 2010 Bourgogne les Sétilles is a direct, frank wine with good varietal and vintage definition in its bright, zesty fruit. Idealy, it is best enjoyed over the next 1-2 years.
