With 13% alcohol, the 2015 Daniel Pollier Saint-Veran “En Messie” cost under $20 and scored a good 16+ Dionysian points on their 20-point scale.

Apple, pear, and mineral notes with a clear light greenish-gold color make this white Burgundy show off its true Chardonnay. A perfect food wine.

Chicken breast off the grill with a fruit laced salad were married to the wine. All the 2015’s were worth cellaring for a while.

I’m halfway through this case of wine and expect it to develop more complexities over the next five years. It’s stored in a cool, dark cellar away from any vibrations. The temperature changes slowly from 62 down to 54 over the course of a year. White Burgundy ages very well. In Vino Veritas.
