Oak, woody flavor. A bit sour means 6 years vintage? Balanced acidity gives me good stimulation. Lemon, lime etc. @1131, Eva - XH, 200530-200603

If I have to drink a Chardonnay, this was crisp and enjoyable enough.

Wanted to drink this after listening to Dominique’s IDTT interview. Found the best nationally priced bottle in Pasadena and it showed really nicely, particularly after being open for something like 4 hours. I like his winemaking approach here, which doesn’t seem to be about elevating it beyond its provenance. It’s a delicious, mineral wine that would crush with shellfish and was lovely in the afternoon along with The Trip to Spain.
