ST-ROMAIN

Although a very acceptable red is also made, it is the white wine from here that is of greatest interest. It is a very typical Chardonnay, pale golden, sometimes tinged with green, that has refined aromas

of white flowers and white fruit such as pear, mirabelle plum, and peach. The nose and taste often contain strong notes of butter, hazelnut, almond, and occasionally of baked dried fruit. It is a rich and complex French wine.

MEURSAULT

Wine from Meursault is celebrated throughout the world for its wonderful golden colour, intense bouquet   of butter,   honey, hazelnut, and lime blossom in which surprising suggestions can be detected of may blossom and spiced bread. It is a silken soft, full, and generous with an aftertaste that lingers on the palate. Enjoy a young Meursault as an aperitif or with a light starter. Do not drink any cooler than 53.6°F(12°C).

There is also a red Meursault, which is fruity and pleasant but never truly convincing.

BURGUNDY WINE *** FRENCH WINE

PULIGNY -MONTRACHET

The 'ordinary' Puligny-Montrachat is a perfect example of refinement and complexity. It is a pale golden colour with nose of white flowers and fruit, sometimes combined with honey, roasted dried fruit, almond, and quince. In the better years the bouquet develops hints of tropical fruit. It is a really fine French wine, fresh and silken, with a tremendous assortment of flowers and fruit in the taste and a prolonged aftertaste. The Premier Cru (e.g. Folatieres, Clos de Ia Garenne) has a more complex bouquet. The nose is reminiscent of new-mown hay, honey, fresh almond, dried fruit, and herbs. This French wine needs to be kept for at least five years in order to fully enjoy its quality. Do not chill too much (approx55.4°F/. 13°C).

BURGUNDY WINE *** FRENCH WINE

MONTRACHET GRAND CRU

This French wine is one of the pillars on which the reputation of Burgundy is built both within France and abroad. It is a fabulous pale golden colour. It takes a number of years for scents captured in the wine to develop themselves fully. Those who drink this wine too young will be disappointed because the bouquel fails to open out. Remain patient for after five years it develops an unimaginable bouquet in which young exotic fruit are combined with the nose of exotic wood, citrus fruit, herbs, lily-of-the­ valley, peach, and almond. Wines from certain climals also possess a light mineral undertone.

BURGUNDY WINE *** FRENCH WINE

The French wine is simultaneously fresh and rounded, full and elegant, refined and seductive, and the aftertaste lingers almost for ever. Drink this rare and expensive wine at 57.2-59°F/14-15°C.

CHEVALIER-MONTRACHET GRAND CRU

Has a golden colour and very seductive bouquet containing butter, Loast, and vegetal undertones with occasional hint of mineral. It is a full, warm, genetous, and juicy wine with a very aromatic taste.
