Darker yellow color, presumably due to age. On opening, the aromas were Chablis-like. After a couple hours, it was more cat piss Sauv Blanc. Acidic, "mineral", fruit is in the background. Slight astringent finish that I want to say is due to being past its prime.
I really like this Chardonnay made in the French Chablis style. Typically a red wine drinker but this 2003 vintage tastes fresh and minerally. I think this can most likely last several more years. Drank over a two day period at various temperatures (i.e. cold from fridge and warming over a 2 hour period). Tastes well cool and as it warms. This is a fantastically made wine. Wish I had more but only 1 more left.
Excellent. Started off nice and bright, great acid, and the dominant aroma was wet rock with a limestone/mineral flavour. Lemongrass was also there. Over time, green apple came out and joined the party. The finish was grassy and maintained its interest over a few hours of being open. Definitely reminded me in some ways of a nice white Burg.
