Tasted blind. Medium gold color. Oxidative nose. Notes of citrus and baked apples, with a little caramel. Rich in the mouth. Modest fruit, light acidity. You can tell this has the stuffing of a great Montrachet, but clearly this bottle had more age than it should. I guessed “a poorly stored 92 Leflaive”. The 86 Niellon next to it looked 13 yrs younger rather than its 13 yrs older. Sadly the pox got this one.

Killer good. When sauzet is on it's perfect. She makes her Monty with a flora essence like no other.
