Almost a year since last bottle and already improving. Recommend waiting 45 mins after opening before serving. The once hydrogen peroxide vibe is gone and is now a vibrant minerality balanced on a point of bright fruits, with citrus at the apex of the subnotes. For us a food, not a sipping wine, at least in this drinking phase.
Popped and poured. Light straw-gold. Intriguing nose of lemon zest, lime juice, honeysuckle, soapstone, minerals and a touch of buttery oak. Moderate-light body. Zippy palate is filled with flavors of lemon, minerals...maybe even a very subtle herbaceous note (cilantro??). Again, a touch of oak but one which is unobtrusive and even complimentary in that it helps keep all of the other elements rounded out. Plus acidity keeps this sharp and focused on a surprisingly persistent finish. Still young, this could use another 1-2 years. Overall, very nice and an awesome QPR in the pricey world of Burgundy.
This started out a little fizzy, but then resolved quite a bit as it warmed into a mouthful of lemon, butter with hints of charcoal. Very nice with homemade clam chowder and then just to sip the evening away.
11 days later - Kept this vacuum sealed in the fridge and finished it up tonight. The taste was much more complex and buttery suggesting that further cellaring might be a benefit. Very enjoyable!!
