Bouquet is slightly funky, showing the terroir. The various elements are nicely integrated, with the fruit and minerals more understated. Best only slightly chillled, to allow the flavors to show.

This is a flat out, fabulous wine. Bone dry but Rich. Many nuances and lots of complexity.

no longer carries the 'de la Giraudiere.'
aromas, savory, grapey, rocky/mineral. easy texture on the palate, juicy mouthwatering note, but acid really doesn't draw much attention to itself. lots of charm, with just a touch of pepper on the palate.

Complex bouquet with ripe yellow fruits, some yeast, straw and minerals. A bit reductive in a beautiful way. On the palate full bodied and even a bit fat, yellow fruits, pear, soft citrus, beautiful soft minerality, mild acidity and soft bitterness. A complex, concentrated and beautiful wine. Ready now, but this can probably last another decade. 92 – 93

Bottled under screw cap. Medium yellow. Some citrus. Great glycerine feel, full and mouth coating. Maybe a tad of residual sugar, waxy, honeysuckle flavors, average acidity, good length. This has held up well and developed a bit but is still short of being anything special compared to other vintages of this cuvee. No reason to hold onto any remaining bottles.

This seemed light and almost fading a bit. I can't believe that but it was still quite fine, just not unctuous or mouthcoating like I remember. This was open in the reefer for a night before I tried it. Very much a tropical wine, sweet apricot, papaya and tangerine notes with pumpkin pie spice on the finish. Dried up a bit on the finish, not at all mouthcoating, but still long in the finish. Just long and dry, not long and thick. I wonder if this should be consumed in the next 3-5 years? Not at all oxidized or baked, so my concern would be just due to it aging and becoming unbalanced. Drink any time.

Petaluma Wine Group goes Themeless (The Bolan's): Bright, sunny fruit. Light weight. Quite dry. Bright acid with a tiny hint of honey and flower petals. Mellowed a bit with age, but still youthful. A bit too light.

Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Light golden to rim; tons of honeyed golden apple, apricot, ripe peach; sweet palate, honeycomb, sugary, good acid, not Riesling but high acid varietal, botrytis, cleansing finish; delicious.

Not sure if it's corked or dead, but definitely not drinkable. Tawny-coloured and tasting oddly of lobster bisque ... nice when it's lobster bisque but not when it's meant to be wine!!

Not much sugar left if there ever was much... but harmonious and beautifully structured; a delight; ready; not really for dessert.

Medium yellow. Classic Chenin nose of apple and pear, missing lanoline. Quite bitter on the palate, loads of acidity. Short-medium length.

Very nice chalk and stone on the nose, with a hint of saltwater and touches of lemon and quince. On the palate, an interesting mix of chalk and creaminess. Good acid backbone and a nice long finish. Every bit as good as my previous bottle.

delicious with fish on the third night and with some good french cheese on the first evening
Initial fruit and minerals not as well integrated as it was on the third night
Drink or hold
Some further development will be helpful

I found some more in the cellar! Still light yellow. Intense aromas of lemon peel, thyme and beeswax. Fresh, glyceral, honeyed and still crisp and tart. Each bottle is subtly different--fascinating.

WSET Level 2 week 1

Clear appearance with medium gold intensity.

Clean, pronounced nose with honey, pineapple, marmalade and tropical fruit.

The palate has medium sweetness, low acidity and low tannin. Medium body with orange peel and honeysuckle. Medium finish.

I really like this wine, great value.

Magnum night with the neighbors (Somewhere on E. 4th street): Screwcapped 750. A nice taste to end the evening. Golden in color. The nose has honey, orange peel and some sea air. On the palate, this is sweet but not overtly. Slightly viscous texture. Nice acidity. Honey and citrus. Long finish. A nice way to finish the evening especially with some buttered popcorn crem brulee.

Workshop Faculty Dinner (My House, Denver, CO): This was an amazing wine to end the dinner with and a stellar match to the brioche, which turned out to be lighter and less sweet than I feared. This wine had a rivetingly complex nose of sweet peach, pear, citrus, straw, burnt caramel, vanilla, and intense mineral. As expected, but not predicted from the richly sweet nose, this wine is lithe on the palate as the mineral and tingly acidity make their presence known from the moment the wine hits the palate. No cloying sweetness or protruding etoh at all. For once a dessert wine that enhanced a dessert (and vice versa; bravo Lucas).
