White Truffle Lunch (Otto e Mezzo, Alexandra House, Central, Hong Kong): Decanted for an hour. Burnished gold colour but still very bright and alive. Nose is an intruiging melange of honey and earth....then lemons, sweaty socks and distinct minerality. Palate is immediately beautiful in mouthfeel then moves into mouthcoating butterscotch perfectly balanced by a moderate baked lemons acidity. No oxidisation whatsoever. Burnished. Powerful. Muscular. Characteristic Meursault. Opens a lot in the glass and gets slightly peppery.....distinct fresh-ground white pepper. Very heady and powerful with enormous resonance inside the head on the finish. Thanks, Greg!
