2008 Ossian

Community Tasting Note


86 Points

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 - I fear this wine is ageing far too fast. The acid, minerality and edgy sharp yellow/green fruit I liked so much in the 2007 and which prompted me to buy a case of the 2008 are yielding fast to a oaky-caramel-butter profile which would be wildy exciting in a 9 year old white burgundy but -alas- is not supported by the quality of this 3-year old Verdejo juice. It ain't no Chablis Grand Cru, folks: each successive bottle I have tried has been softer and flabbier than the last one. Now feels distinctly overpriced at just under €20/75cl. 86P(?)
