the hatch 2020 Check Your Côte at the d'Or
the hatch wines
A first in a sense, but really an addition to a long line & pre-existing love affair with Chardonnay. Check your côte is a lively & lovely thing, with marvellous mid-mouth weight. It's: Flinty, Hay Field-y & White Flower-y forward. Also, there's: a melange of Melon, Lemon & Orchard Basket moments.
This newest of hatchings is a bi-product of inimitable wit of Brodie Isaac & perpetual artistic genius of Paul Morstad. "Kartoffel Kafka" is the visage of this poignant reference to the pretention laden hierarchy of Chardonnay & Burgundy, also a subversive reference to the man himself....if you're keeping up on your Czech you'll understand, if not...well, never mind. The rest is a liquid mystery, best investigated in a liquid sense.
