“Mixed Bag of Chardonnays from around the World”-Tasting, Wine 4 (blind), in November 2013: From half-bottle. The wine was medium yellow-golden in colour and offered a rather shy nose of apple, pear, vanilla and some smoke. On the palate the medium- to full-bodied wine showed apple, lemon, lime, grapefruit and some vanilla, paired with medium-plus prominent acidity and very good length. Acidity and oak were not yet well-integrated and stood out and despite the obvious quality of the wine it had not yet found its balance. Needs time. My favourite wine of the flight; 89+ points for now, with good potential to improve with mid-term cellaring.
Au caveau de Puligny (Puligny-Montrachet): 33% de fûts neufs donnent un premier nez grillé et toasté et une attaque opulente cependant vite reprise par une vive acidité et des notes d'agrumes, pulpe de citron notamment. Encore jeune mais intéressant parmi les Meursault goûtés ces jours-ci.
