  • Not nearly as good as the last bottle. A little flabby, too oxidized for me (and I like a little oxidization). Could be bottle variation -- the last was 2 years ago -- or maybe it is over the hill. Regardless, I will be drinking the next one sooner rather than later.

  • I like oldcorke's 11/27/12 comments. The wine is a nice example of a white Rhone. Finished gently, but very pleasantly.

  • Evidently well stored bottle, medium shimmering gold color, with excellent purity.
    Opens aromatically with wet stone and white spring flowers. Warms in glass to reveal dried apricot/tangerine/honey aromas. Stoney but modestly rich, satisfying palate of ripe, tho not lush, white peach and a little dried apricot. Some hazelnut aromas and flavors emerge later. Not an overrich expression of Marsanne, quite fresh for it's age but quite satisfying too. Not a hint of oxidation or old age. This particular bottle would be good for another 3-4 years, easily.
