Bright and lively. Zesty lemon with a mildly buttery tone to it. Well done on the acidity front--mouthwatering. Everything is in balance. If it were more complex it would deserve to be compared to a fine Chablis. Excellent.
Motherfu*king lightning lemon sour zappers mixed sea salt dipped maybe not seasalt but some other mineral rockyness but not like wuss rocky 1 rocky but badass rocky 4 rocky where even tho the russian (drago) beat apollo to dead rocky train hard in russia with pureness that allow him to defeat and make message about glastnost. do you even remember when he drove through that tunnel or when he was training in russia and did those intense sit ups and also ran in front of the car and then ran up the mountain and got to the top and yelled at the top and it made you feel as though even though detroit was failing but we were still ok (i.e., specific metaphor for the pre (and post)-soviet decline of western hedonistic culture and manufacturing prowess we still felt strong and could release movies like gung ho without irony.
PopnPour, tasted over 3 hrs -translucent light gold with green tinge -sour lemon, slight funk -mouth-watering acidity, searing minerality on ripe and slightly sweet lemony mid-palate, power without weight, excellent length -thrilling dynamic wine loaded with tension, very reminiscent of a Chablis in a riper vintage
Much more enjoyable than my last experience of this wine. Weightier, more substantial, though certainly not ponderous, it seemed to have added dimension. Still dominated, according to my tastebuds, by lemon flavors but on this occasion they were fleshier, deeper, and consequently more interesting. Some distinctly floral characteristics made an appearance, and whereas the last bottle disappointed me I liked this one very much.
