Powerful but not elegant. Enjoyable but not gorgeous. In nose it's as good as a Lafon can be but it lacks the multidimensional and complexity a top Meursault from a shoulder-year we expected. Lafon-esque but not memorable.
Britannia group (Hix Mayfair): Deep colour but no hint of any premox. Nutty rich and fat, oak with some fresh green herbs behind.. Fat rich and a bit one dimensional on finish. Still young. Very Lafon in style but a bit too heavy for me.
Wow! What a wine. The nose reminded me very much of the cut mushrooms you can find in Bollingers style of Champagne. So deep like a wet forest. In the mouth it was surprisingly fresh and lively with plenty of sweet butter, nuts and minerals. As Mayvalley wrote, a very special wine indeed and one of the most interesting noses I have ever encountered in a white wine. Bravo!
Very interesting aromas! The wine displayed funky earthy aromas, decaying leaves and roasted hazelnuts. In the mouth it was very mineral driven, but counterbalanced by buttery and fine fruit notes. There was razor sharp acidity in this wine and again a funky tone. A very special wine indeed!
