Kind of boring. Even with air and closer to room temp it just didn't have a whole lot of complexity.

Soft mouthfeel, white flowers, minerals. Sings in the glass. A thing of beauty. $85 #yyc at Bin 905

Gorgeous aromatic, fennel, clarified butter, mineral, white peach. Incredibly textural. Round and infinitely long on the palate. Phenomenal.

Emperor’s new clothes. Very nice if you prefer overblown, oxidized white wines. Tried the 09 and 10 back fo back. The Grillet is way, way better. Very overpriced at $300.

Rich, oily and round. At this point in my life I find myself liking St. Joe blanc more than hermitage blanc but maybe that's just because I haven't had enough old hermitage blanc
