An investment that has continued to pay dividends. Purchased ex-chateau in 2011; 1/2 case at $30/bottle—almost an impossible extravagance for a freshly minted college graduate in a bum economy. Now fully mature (the wine, that is), what a joy to taste this as it evolves over a few hours in the decanter. Cherry/cranberry accord, great acidity, tannins still present, aging delightfully. A silver fox. Way above premier cru. Thankful to have one left. — 14 days ago
Lemon zest, lemon curd, good minerality, lingering finish. Clean and complex. — 2 months ago
Dinner with friends tonight, light notes if any.
This bottle is so over the top, and we love it, not even a 1er Cru! Prior notes apply:
Nose is the epitome of pineapple core with buttered popcorn and white flowers sneaking around.
Palate exudes tropical fruits, pineapple, papaya, lychee, light mango...All with low acidity making this so ridiculously enjoyable. — 22 days ago
Perfect Chardonnay. Slight butter taste and a salty finish — 10 hours ago
Pretty, high toned aromatics, linear across the palate, crisp red fruit, firm tannin, a real match to roasted root veg and polenta. Lovely value. This has sinew and tension all at once with a solid core of mineral character. — a month ago
Gorgeous nose of lemon, minerals, lime rock candy, incredibly refined. Palate is like a baby Corton Chatlrlemagne with a kiss of oak, luscious Golden minerality, incredibly compact and complete with terrific energy, awesome sap and concentration with terrific purity and density. So clean and balanced with a terrific long finish. — 2 months ago
