Same as last bottle. Needs 5 hour decant.

Serious reduction that after an initial 3 hour decant and then a necessary additional hour 😅, finally blows off and gives way to layers of ripe orchard fruit, dry yellow extract, lemon oil and lilies, finishing with a cool mineral streak. It’s drinking quite youthful and primary still, but it’s in a good place nonetheless showing a nice balance of richness, vibrant acidity, tension and freshness. 2012 could sleep a bit more or use a 3 hour decant at minimum. A lot of great material here.

Decanted for a hour, but still reductive with PYCMs trademark nose of matchstick and flint. Really should have given it another hour to air before pouring because it started opening up in the glass towards the end. Quite saline and bitter on the palate and seems to lack the weight and complexity of a Premier Cru. Rather high acidity and combined with its cool nose, a few guessed St Aubin.

Mineral, lemon, orchard peach great tension & lengthy subtle grilled bread nuttiness. Killer.
