Ripe, succulent peach and nectarine fruit, a hint of almonds and brioche character.
One of the most critically acclaimed growers of the village of Pommard, as Robert Parker puts it: "I have a lot of time for the wines of Anne Parent," continuing, "this is a domaine that deserves more attention than it currently receives...; wines that seem to be improving year on year under the guidance of Anne and her team. What is more, prices are very reasonable, which means that everyone can enjoy her wines."
Drinking beautifully now, Parent's 2014 Bourgogne Blanc is a wonderfully rich, succulent and textured white Burgundy, from a fabulous vintage, with a good dollop of declassified fruit added to the blend from Anne Parent's vineyard holdings in Corton and Monthelie.
Showing gently perfumed aromas of apple blossom and pear, the palate shows ripe, succulent peach and nectarine fruit, a hint of almonds and brioche character, and a long mineral finish.
Drinking beautifully this summer, serve well-chilled as a deliciously refreshing aperitif, or match with barbequed fish, seafood and chicken.
Alternatively, age for another six months and enjoy with even richer honeyed character this Christmas.
