Decanted up to 1.5 hours and tasted throughout. At its best at the end of the decantment period. On the nose mostly gravel and fierce minerality with quite some oak. Very primary on the palate with a lot of fatness and a silky smooth mouthfeel. Some underlying bitterness that disappeared with decanting. Also a lot of unintegrated oak. Broad in the mouth and twenty seconds length. A fine wine but would wait two years before trying it again.
Very light in colour. Strong legs. Quite a delicate but lovely nose, it bit hard to pick any particular elements out, honeysuckle, lemon zest and a bit of oak. The palate isn't that open, it's fresh, quite piercing at this early stage with a very long finish which is pretty great showing some nutty character
Nose a bit shy at first, once opens up: well integrated oak, notes of citrus, mineral note. High acidity, mineral streak reminding me of a Grand Cru Chablis, such as Les Clos. Understated, nervous, racy style. Well-balanced. Needs 10 plus years.
