if you or someone you know hates Chardonnay, as I sometimes hear, this little number - 2011 DRC #Montrachet 💥- will effect an instant conversion. It is inconvertibly beautiful and pure, with a lemon-mineral core, joined by shades of tangerine and salted caramel balanced by an invigorating citric minerality, and a golden, silky persistence that stretches out like a cheetah's paw. 🐾 🐅 Even the residue of the empty glass seduces the sniff 👃. This is a more elegant and balanced style, not the creamy honeycomb voluptuousness of 2005 or 2000 DRC Montrachet, which are also sublime. Only 3,178 bottles on Earth. Perfect with Galatorie's jumbo lump crab salad. 🦀 #Burgundy #wine

Bottle was not in the best condition but here goes: Golden amber, rather complex nose comprising of walnuts, haystack, sudachi, maize and buckwheat. Not as luscious as I expected but still oily and silky. Happy CNY. GXFC!

2 hours of air and then it makes love to you till the last drop. 07. Orgasmic.
