Nice young light gold color. Great nose. Notes of lemon, apricot, dusty earth, minerals and some brown spice. Very rich in the mouth and fruit forward, especially for the vintage. Soft acidity. Great mouth feel and finish. Bottles like this could easily last 10 more years.

Cocktail hour at Christie's hosted by the Friends of Notre Dame in the effort to help raise money for the cathedral's restoration. The wines were artfully curated by @Noah May.
Second up was this delicious and supple white burgundy. Pears and apple blossom combine in this texturally elegant wine. The finish is adequate if a little stilted. It should be noted that when I had this wine with an elegantly crafted canapé, both exploded with taste. Next time it will be a whole bottle with a full meal!

The 2010 is quite stunning, crisp pear and ginger notes, dense core and bit of mineral tang and great length.
