A powerful rendition of CC for sure, up front to the back the tension and power are very apparent. The wine has 3 distinct phases on the palate: the attack starts with fruit that is starting to fade into maturity, the middle is where the oak takes over, while the finish is the best part thrusting the energy of the wine deep into a long finish. If anything the oak is too aggressive while the slight oxidation tells me it's starting to descend from a peak.

Coolest bottle number ever! And the content; well wow!!! Burying with golden citrus fruits and the underlying spine of crushed chalk is to die for. While rich and wrapped in luxurious oak, it's also airy and long, almost savoury but still elegant. Impressive!

Showing now albeit without as much vitality or exuberance as expected despite no obvious signs of premature oxidation. As others have commented regarding 2008 Cote de Beaune Blanc, possibly a flatter, shorter lived vintage than initially anticipated.

Great wine. Developing characters. Hints of caramel and brûlée. Oak integration and lovely balance. So full and generous, yet offers such focus.
