Ordered off a restaurant list. Straw gold. Great vibrant nose. Very mineral. Notes of lemon, white flowers, wet river stones and some cardamom. After several hours of air this blossoms. Still young but had some nuances of complexity. Great to compare the 2010 vs the 1986 today.

Had to open this after the 92 Verget Montrachet the night before pushing me this way. Deep yellow gold color from bottle with a high fill. Nose suggests immediately this is the real deal. Notes of apricot, lemon, clay soil and some brown spice. Incredible impact in the mouth. Lucious fruit battling fine grain acidity that makes your face flush. This always performs and is one of my all time fave white burgs.

Gorgeous open oily lemon fruit. Limestone and oyster shells and pretty light acacia and minerals. After being open for 24 hours this is singing. A gorgeously balanced wine

Sweet, matchsticks. Lovely presence. Citrus and wonderful depth. Acid and lovely fruit. Surprisingly approachable now. Almost strawberry like hint

Soft lemon with notes of mint? And an oily minerality. Slightly saline. Long and excellent.

I had this out of coravin and man, did it underdeliver. Not sure if that was it but even after about 45 minutes it was still tight and lacking in acid and overall expression. Perhaps it’s young and has to be aged but I have had much better burgundy for less many times.

See note on the 2008. Duplicate with 3 less years on it. 😃
