  • Beaune Ï¿½greves� Rapet 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Simple and pretty. Strawberry, vanilla and minerals; both on the nose and on the palate. A little watery and lacking in complexity. Nice hints of oak on the finish. Read More

  • Domaines et Châteaux Pellerin Bourgogne-Aligoté 2007

    Greenish-straw colour with aroma of yellow fruits and a touch of vanilla. Light-bodied crisp wine with smooth tannin but a very short finish. Read More
