    February 27, 2013 - Took to dinner tonight. No decant but did have at the proper temp. I didn't realize when I tried this a few weeks back at Falltac how much acid was in this bugger. Listed alc of 14.1%, which seems to help set off the texture to some extent. Lots of lemon and spice in the finish, as well as mineral, tonic water note. Medium weight with green apple and lemon. Got about one glass left for tomorrow to see how it evolves and close this note......a day later, drinking this without any food to get a pure sense of what the wine is about, there is a mix of a melon note, not something I would put in a chardonnay TN necessarily but this is what it rings for me. Also, the acid comes through as lemon within a glossier texture, joining the green apple and the tonic-like note. The aromatic has a chablis-like sea air note, too. Reminds me a little of the 2010 Louis Michel Sechet chablis I had this past weekend. Tasted blind, this may fool me for a Michel cuvee chablis. Enough acid to carry the wine, can go another several years but it drinks fine now, like a young 1er chablis.
