I sacrilegiously had this chambré. Sorry. HOWEVER, it was fantastic, the acidity was still on show (I'd have been open to more) and pears had become almonds honey and roses. Long finish, complex, dry, satisfying. Definitely stick it in the garage for an hour or two first.

Utvecklat men kanske inte längre så piggt och fräscht. Massor av ylle, lite stenfrukt. Inte riktigt en favorit.
