Mischief and Mayhem Chardonnay Bourgogne Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Clean, fresh, pure and focused with a terrific soft acidic profile and lovely texture. There is flinty minerality and some nicely rounded citrus notes of lemon and greengage, along with apple, cream, vanilla and hints of ginger.

Mischief and Mayhem is the creation of Michael Ragg and Michael Twelftree, two great friends whose passion for wine, and for Burgundy in particular, inspired them to team up and create the company in autumn 2004. Michael Ragg spent nearly ten years working with leading UK fine wine merchant Berry Bros. & Rudd before moving to Burgundy in spring 2003 and setting up his own wine consultancy and broking business in Aloxe-Corton. He's Mischief. Michael Twelftree is co-founder and driving force behind top Australian winery Two Hands Wines in the Barossa Valley. He's Mayhem. Living in Aloxe-Corton for over seven years has given Ragg the opportunity to develop a lot of contacts on the ground in Burgundy and this is key to the business. Mischief and Mayhem sources grapes from all over the Côte d'Or and Ragg's knowledge of the region's vineyards, along with Twelftree's knowledge of the world's emerging markets, combine together in a goal to produce outstanding wine, in a helpful way, that uncovers and de-mystifies this wonderful, yet often frustratingly complex region. We settled here in Aloxe-Corton over 7 years ago and with the development of Mischief and Mayhem we felt that it was important to create a tasting room so as to enable visitors to taste and enjoy our wines. Throughout the summer and autumn of 2006 therefore we were hard at work on the renovation and development of our Mischief and Mayhem Cellar Door. Read less

This is waxy and evolved on the nose with rich aromas of honeycomb, almond brittle, candied apple and aged golden delicious fruit, gaining notes of green tea and even some pipe tobacco with air. Broad and open on the palate, this delivers some nice nuanced nutty, toffee notes wrapped around a core of soft apple fruit with hints of dried lime zest. Bright yet slightly creamy with some Orange-sicle notes coming out on the back end and faintly medicinal tones that extend over the moderately long, slightly hot finish. There’s a lot to like here, but this is a bit atypical for a Bourgogne Blanc. 88pts

Molasses and caramelized sugar, with a bit of toast. It's oddly toasted, with browned butter.

Plum and almond nose, reminded me of a dessert wine. More plum in the mouth, with umami notes that reminded me of sake. Very interesting.

Very biscuity. Tasted a lot like tarte tartin with some apricot. There's an acidity cutting through, but not sure it melds well with the other flavors. Like someone squirted lemon over a sweet dessert. Not enough to bother me too much, though, considering.

Apples and minerals on the nose. Sweet and sour green apple on the tongue with hints of sweet tea. A nice sweet and sour finish. Very interesting wine. I enjoyed this one very much!
