"A brilliant pale yellow colour with green glimmers. The very nice expressive nose has white flower scents. The attack is bold and generous. This wine, which is balanced on the palate, has good volume and quite exceptional long-lasting scents and tastes for this appellation."
Varietal: Chardonnay: 100%
Score: 88 PointsInternational Wine Review Author: Michael Apstein
"I cant speak too highly of the 2008 vintage in Burgundy for white wines. Even at the most basic level, Bourgogne Blanc, like this one, they show character and class. In less good years, this category of wine suffers from under ripeness and astringency. But 2008 gave the wines destined for Bourgogne Blanc added ripeness without sacrificing bracing acidity. Couple that with a fine producer, such as Faiveley, and you have a well-priced introduction to white Burgundy. Not an opulent California Chardonnay, Faiveleys Bourgogne Blanc has verve and an engaging restrained creaminess. Its perfect for current consumption with roast chicken."
