Quite a deep golden colour so I got Grant at fermentAsian to splash it into a black Riedel glass to serve to some mates blind. There is plenty of truffle and mushroom development on the nose and in the mouth. There are notes of lemon, slate and bruised apples as well. It is full and rich with a big squeeze of lemon juice acidity. It has fantastic length of flavour.
New York bids adieu to Sharon Bowman (Dougherty's): Once again Dougherty tortures me by bringing out an old Huet, but makes it a sec. Indeed, it was a pretty severe wine. It's surprisingly muted on the nose, but on the palate it's a razor wire bullwhip that thrashes the insides of your mouth with acidic fury. Yeah, there's some typical quince, bergamot, shoe polish and mineral to add a little pleasure, but this is about as much into S & M as I want to go. Please pass the sugar. B-.
