Tasted blind. Straw color with hints of light gold. Sweet feminine nose. Pretty. Notes of citrus, hay, white flowers and a little soil. Bright fruit shines in the mouth with vibrant acidity. Well made wine. Guessed 2012 Boillot Clos de la Mouchere

In the zone, drinking better with some air. Not as fresh or zippy as I would’ve thought, but happy nonetheless

Straw gold. Distinct and vibrant in the glass. Notes of sweet lemon, stone, white flowers, clay dust and a little ginger spice. Rich in the mouth. Long finish coats the palate. Very nice. Needs more time on its side to gain some complexity.

Been open for 2 hours now, but still needs more time. Let's revisit. Sulfur notes are coming up. Super complex, rich and good. I'll be back

Not a lot of mineral on the finish, mais c'est bon.
