Sylvain Dussort, Cuvée des Ormes Bourgogne Blanc 2015, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: A white Burgundy with subtle, barely-there oak that adds just the perfect amount of vanilla to counterbalance the fruit.
Pale-intensity lemon-green in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of green apple, quince, pear, lime citrus and blossom with hints of vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Bourgogne Blanc presents just-shy-of-ripened green fruit flavors along with some white grape flavors.
The wine has layers of flavor indicative of indigenous-yeast fermentation.
It is creamy in texture with minerality on the medium-plus finish.
