Smooth. Waxy tropical fruit, salinity and honey. Impressive, especially for its age. Still drinking very well, although I would expect some bottle variation at this point. The cork for this was in bad shape but the product inside was just fine.
a pleasant surprise -- i expect this is "bottle to bottle" at this point, but this one was hanging in there and really opened up with a little warmth and air. cork looked disgusting, but the wine came through. surprisingly youthful, with some apricot fruit still there behind some lovely minerality. textbook rhone white for me, with a little extra flint character. long finish.
My last bottle. Drunk with Paul and Ayub. No one guessed Rhone. We were all in Burgundy - mostly 85/6 Meursault. A very truffley, buttery wine. No Rhone oiliness. So much better than previous bottles. This wine rises from the dead.
Medium-deep gold colour, pronounced nutty nose of marzipan & almonds, honey, pear, pineapple and a touch of caramelised tarte tatin. Medium-high acidity, intense palate with notes of honey, ripe green fruits, minerals and a buttery finish. More than a hint of oak, but well integrated and really nice balance. Great length.
