A blend of five 1er Crus that include Tuvilains, Aigrots and Sizies among several others that total over 10 ha; in 2016, the yield was only 15 hl/ha.

The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Du Château Blanc inexplicably did not finish its malolactic until June or July. It has a tightly wound, slightly resinous bouquet. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, crisp acidity, quite minerally in the mouth with a brisk, slightly oaky finish that lingers. What a lovely white Burgundy!
Barrel Sample: 88-90
In contrast to the Pouilly-Fuissé, the reduction is sufficiently prominent that I would advise decanting this first. Otherwise there is excellent concentration to the sappy and palate coating flavors that possess a lovely texture that extends to the solidly complex and sneaky long finish.
