Wines Tasted at HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago IL): Starts with wintergreen, ripe apple and faint tropical and vanilla hints. Same flavor profile with very good concentration and excellent structural balance for the vintage. This was popped and poured, best (93) when first poured vs an hour later (91).
Unlike my previous bottles, this was in perfect shape, and was head and shoulders above other 97s I've drunk. A very mineral nose with a touch of bacon fat and some wood showing. A rich palate with surprising acidity. A bit too short to be great but a wonderful surprise from this premox-dogged year (and producer).
A delicious white wine from a vintage that really wasn’t destined to age. There was some fruit rind development characters along with a hint of vanilla. It was round and relatively complex with sneaky persistence.
