Bourgogne Blanc 2012, Jérôme Fornerot
This is the first time I have seen and tasted a bottle from Domaine Jérôme Fornerot based in the idyllic village of Saint-Aubin. The family has been in Saint-Aubin for 500 years of course. Bad show from me for not noticing. This chardonnay has a flat nose. It requires significant snifing and nasal digging to find aromas of pine nuts, lemon and white flowers. Not exciting or even there. Sartrian. Tight lemon and sappy flavours. Its all rather drab. Scores 15/30 for a bourgogne blanc.
