About

89-91

From 0.48 hectare of Chardonnay vines planted in 1992 below the village beside his house and winery. Cropped at less than Grand cru regulations of 35 hl/ha and aged in barrel producing around 200 cases each vintage. A rarity and one of the very few whites produced in the top Cote de Nuits villages, Bordering on opulent underpinned with ample acidity.”The 2017 Bourgogne Côteaux Bourguignon Blanc Cuvée Axelle, which is 100% Chardonnay, has an attractive, lilting apricot and passion-fruit-tinged bouquet. The palate is well balanced with tropical notes on the entry and slightly waxy in texture. Hints of white chocolate appear toward the finish. Recommended.
