Rully les Mollepierre, Matheiu de Brully, 2004
Deep gold, very mature for a 2004. Some initial fresh scents of ripe pears but also earthy, developed aroma of hazelnuts and grains. Very much a Chalonnaise Chardonnay, probably unoaked and a very good value at about $14. Good substantial mouthfeel and grip. I like this wine now but will drink up what I have over the next six months. Compared to the Macon Pierreclos, it lacks a bit of freshness.
