Quite a bit more wooden and exceptionally denser than I remember this wine. I loved it, but think this Chenin needs time and has much to reveal behind the wood. Hide this away for 10 years. And, I wonder if there are multiple bottlings.

Popping my Guibertau cherry. Waxey, lemony nose. Minerals, touch of smoke. Ripping acidity and way way too young. Closed too as it is thin but has a thick finish. Think this will flesh out as evening goes on.

Don't even bother drinking this below cellar temp. This wine has its own wooly sweater.
