Nose has yellow apple peel, pear slice, straw and beach sand.

Palate has tangerine zest, ripe pear, under-ripe yellow peach, cold clementine orange with medium acidity and slightly dry finish.
A nice bottle; not sure if this wants more time, or a couple years past prime...

On the sold out (18K+ patrons) Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our guest Conductor Ken-David Masur is leading a 90th birthday celebration of John Williams. BSO soloists tonight are J. Williams Hudgins (vibraphone) & Jessica Zhou (harp), joined by Yo-Yo Ma (cello), Branford Marsalis (saxophone), Eric Revis (bass) and James Taylor (vocals/guitar). A truly wonderful night lay ahead, and my money is certainly on hearing at least one or two Star Wars movements this evening...

Rocky like Mount Blanc, minerals like the Adriatic, almost salty (which I love). Grips in your mouth like one of those annoying locks on the bridges over the Seine. Perfect with briny, sweet seafood. Spectacular

Still the gold standard. Rich, elegant, persistent. Especially fresh in ‘15.

Like it, don't love it. Round and rich. Prefer the racy acidity of Roulot's Aligoté.
