Very broad with syrupy edges and a honeyed core. All that 2010 tangy middle. Lovely presence and underlying oyster shells

Light lemon gold . Lovely white fruits, floral with mineral backbone. Lovely lift to it. Still young. Lovely richness in the mouth, ripe fruits, obviously the product of a warm vintage , more of the lemon , mineral, flint , notes . Slight toasty-ness also . Very long and assertive on the palate . Balanced acidity , really nice lift on the finish. Very slight alcoholic kick at the end. Excellent today but still very young, will not doubt improve over a decade or so, would like to try this in a few years as I am sure it is holding a lot back today.

Not dead ; but ready for business. Pleased this was not oxidized yet this was not going to improve with further aging . Amazingly taught and focused for a 2009 with a very clean, dry lasting finish. A very tasty Chevy!
