Treats in the cellar: Vouvray, Chablis, Bordeaux, Piedmont and Hermitage (Chelsea Wine Storage.): My second try with this wine and it remains a tough one to love. From a difficult vintage and it shows. It wasn't revealing all that much on the nose, though some rot and quince were present. It was much more open on the palate where it revealed a disconcerting and rather off putting bad oyster note that's tough to work through. There's some quince and yellow citrus with bright acids, but the wine just isn't that generous and that spoiled shellfish character just really ruins it for me. Manuel described it as first being head butted and then kissed by a woman and I had to add, "yeah, with bad breath" to make it more accurate. C+/C.
