Back up bottle pulled because of the corked 05 Clos. Lighter color, straw gold. Side by side it makes the taint in the Clos more obvious. Notes of white flowers, quince, honeydew melon, stones, white clay and a tiny bit of honey. With adequate air this expands and gets huge. Both bottles have that sort of welcome dirtiness I find in both Dauvissat and Niellon. More subdued than the flamboyant Clos, and needs more age to reach its potential. Yet this is really good right now.

Lemon curd, a bit lactic but round with good weight.

Such a bright shining expression of appellation, vintage and varietal. So easy and enjoyable to drink with plenty of complexity of freshness and weight.
