Good complexity on the nose. A very opulent style here. Fresh creamery butter, vanilla, yeasty. Less bubbles than wine #1, but very complex and rather oaky, with good length. Well-made, but stylewise i preferred the others in this (admittedly very strong) flight. My 3/3, group's 1/3. Tasted blind.
Huge nose, beautifully perfumed. Hazelnut, yeast, lemon zest, but then a distracting note of volatile acidity that comes across as pickle. Good acid, quite creamy mouthfeel, flavor of shaved white chocolate. Clearly very high quality, but the pickle note for me is a negative. But this is a weak flight and it's still my 1/3, group's 3/3. Tasted blind.
Kind of a dud. Weird green aromas, with high acid. Popz (enologist friend) said serious reduction. Bleah. My 3/3, group's 2/3. Tasted blind. We popped two more bottles of this afterward which confirmed this was a flawed bottle.
Nose dominated by volatile acidity, again coming across as pickle. Luxurious red fruits, with well integrated acidity. My 2/3, group's 2/3. Tasted blind. Curious in retrospect that i got pickle on the nose of both Fleurys.
