Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has oxidized yellow apple, sweet pineapple, yellow apple flesh and faint oak influence.
Palate has pineapple, yellow melon, dried lemon peel, ripe papaya, naval orange (light) with light, sweet oak on the long finish.
Very surprised at this bottle, after having the lesser tier bottling (2007) on several occasions, I expected this to be highly oxidized and only pleasurable to anyone enjoying that particular style of Romorantin. This bottle was lively and fresh, still many years to go, future bottles can be 2022+ with little concern, when in proper storage.

15 years old and doing an amazing tightrope walk of acidity and RS. Mineral and fruit to boot. Wow

Started out waxy and almost rieslingesque. Needed just a bit of time to stretch its legs. Golden and brassy but nothing here that's either literally sweet or figuratively so (honeyed, etc.). Straddles the line between pure chenin-like fruit and something a bit more fat and gushing.
