Killer. This still has a bit of sulfur on the nose, but it displays itself as a smokey, gunflint like character. It quickly dissipated and revealed an abundance of yellow fruit, custard, and flowers. There was a touch of a yeasty component that made the wine smell like cream cheese danish. All of these wonderful rich flavors were supported by an impressive spine of acidity and a fine minerality. Just spectacular wine. It was surprising to my that the acid was so good in such a ripe vintage.
Deep yellow/orange color. sweet almond, jasmine flowers on the nose. Weighty and rich flavors show a floral spectrum that's unmatched by the other Montrachets tonight. Long finish and a strong acid backbone...wow!
Bright golden, honey straw yellow. Viscous and oiley in appearance. Upon being poured the glass, I let the wine sit as it was too cold for consumption. A SOLID 8 minutes later, never having touched the glass I looking down and noticed legs still on the glass from my first swirl! I couldn't believe it. Beautiful nose - hazelnut - with a slight oxidative note / taking on tertiary aromas. The palate is fresh, bright & ripe with revrence on the back - no edge's. A real push to the rich finish. Long and expansive with more acidity than I would have expected from such a ripe year. Minerally driven finish.
