On the nose, faint lime and pineapple citrus. On the palate, pear and white peach, with notes of lime, pineapple, and iodine leading into a medium to long finish, with good acidity. Excellent; I only wish it were $40 instead of $65.
fantastic bottle we had alongside my brother's '57 Mouton Rothschild, tiffany raved more than i have seen her in the past about this bottle, and surprised me when she said she liked it better than the 2012 we have had a few times, great acidity and tension but also plenty of material underlying (minerals, fruit, sweet fruit and salty all at the same time)… plenty of life ahead, happy i bought two cases of this stuff, is and will be magic for a long time, couple points of upside here with time
Dinner at Sun Wah (Sun Wah BBQ - Chicago, IL): Everything was in the right place with this wine and it was fantastic. The nose was airy, salty, citrusy...The palate had great cut with big, cool fruit throughout. Pears, lemons, limes...think "fresh fruit". Really nice salty/mineral tones too gave it a real sense of place. A powerful Preuses!
Dinner at Sun Wah (Chicago, IL): This is quite ripe on the nose, with mostly a flinty character. The palate is just incredible though. Lots of freshness combined with gunflint. Lots of density combined with an almost Roulot-like ability to float above the clouds. Like a green laser, this is powerful and precise. Excellent Chablis, or chardonnay for that matter. Of course, the real challenge is to hold these for 10+ years and not have them pox (but props to using Diam and trying at least something!). But drinking these now is pleasure enough.
