Ok, this will read a little oddly...

Decanted 2H. Somewhat Meursault-like... Nose has dried pineapple, hazelnut butter and fresh honey. Palate has warmed pear, browning butter and dried lime zest.

24H Update:
Nose has candied pineapple, slight vanilla oak, crushed hazelnut, buckwheat honey and lemon zest. Palate has warmed pear, lime pith, browning butter and oxidized yellow apple. This bottle is really changing my perception of MO wines, we've certainly had good whites/reds from the State, but this is a different standard. I'll still confess if blinded, this is Meursault, after several hours of air last night, and again with 24 hours of air, just wow!

A little oaky on pop-n-pour, so we'll see where air brings this, dry in style. MO wines are always an interesting trip.
