This is a full and generous white burgundy with overtones of nuts and butter.Well balanced and with a nervous acidity that enlivens the palate, it is crisp and mineral in the finish that goes on for a long time in the aftertaste. Very much worthy of consideration in every cellar.

La Boudriotte is a small premier cru
vineyard site of the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation in Burgundy. Located just south-east of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, this gently sloping, east-facing vineyard produces both red wines from Pinot Noir and white wines from Chardonnay. La Boudriotte lies within the grounds of the Morgeot Abbey and it is technically a sub-division of the more-famous Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot premier cru
. In fact, it is unusual to find a Chassagne-Montrachet La Boudriotte as the wines are more often labelled with the Morgeot name.
