Nose has pineapple core, warmed toffee, over-ripe mango, lanolin, warm beeswax, wet river rock, (grilled) ripe pineapple and faint warm green herbs. So GD fragrant, it's killing us, wow.

Palate has waxy pineapple, warmed yellow apple, butterscotch candy, peach peel, warm brioche, caramel, (minor) green melon with an extensive finish, so long, OMG we are in heaven.

Decanted 3h, then double decanted and back into the refrigerator for service temp, 1h.

Paired with a beautifully grilled slab of steelhead trout, fish was honestly 96 points, our regular fish source, but this was a thicker cut than normal. Also toasted orzo with our garden herbs and some sauteed summer squash.

Honestly I'm at a loss of words for the quality of everything delivered to the table tonight.

Some pictures of my favorite things tonight, which also includes an absolute stunning guitar album featuring Les Paul and Chet Atkins, 'Chester & Lester', two of the best old school guitar greats. If you get a guitar named after you, well, enough said...

Prior bottle was fully different than this one, is this the God Bottle, and it landed in my hands tonight? Next few bottles will be my proof, so we'll see.

Nose has few day old lemon peel, wet river rocks, lightly oxidized apple, lanolin and beeswax.

Palate has dehydrated pear & apple slices, wet sandstone, neutral oak, somewhat dry on the finish makes for a unique St. Aubin experience.

I don't think this is past enjoyment, but might be on the down side of middle age. So much minerality on the palate, almost a fruitless wine. I'll be interested to see this bottle in a couple more years, luckily still a few bottles in the cellar.

Castor photo bomb. This is in the zone. Big mineral and very generous nose. Wet stones. Very clean, like a pure stream of rocks and some hints of green apple. Complex palate with insane mineral. Almost no fruit. Love it. Lively palate with a long finish with terrific cut. Excellent showing. No rush. Had 5-7 more years.
