Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy Jane Skilton MW March 2024 ***** 96

Nose is quite restrained at this stage, good concentration of fruit, sitting in the white stone-fruit spectrum. Oak is discreet and exerts very little influence on the pure, intensely concentrated palate. Has an appealing, faintly pithy texture. Plenty of potential but needs much longer. Drink from 2026 – 2032. Tasted: December 2023.

The 2022 Chardonnay Block 6 is a fully concentrated and robust style. It is quite ripe, with 14% alcohol contributing to the body and glycerol-like smoothness, but this also lends a touch of heat that slightly detracts from its overall harmony. However, this wine comes into its own with a firm structure and unapologetic intensity, setting it apart from Block 2, which is more gentle and open. Lees-derived almond pastry notes meet apple and pear fruit flavors, which linger on the long finish. Drinking Window: 2024-2032
