ROCHE DE BELLENE VIEILLES VIGNES BOURGOGNE CHARDONNAY 2010

Pale in color with a varietal chard nose along with some flint coming through. On the mid pallet there’s some creamyness, some butteryness and a little vanilla coming through. There’s also some minerality present. The wine is on the lighter side of medium in length on the finish. I would give it an 88-89.
