The nose showed incipient premox notes of simple apple juice (and not much else) through day 1, with some austere minerals on the margins of day 2. What kept me drinking this was the parsley, lime, powdered stone, soda-biscuit palate that reminded me of a chalky dry Vouvray. Underripe I suppose, but also shimmering with very long limestone echoes, and that tempers my disappointment in this bottle. This was bought after a taste at the winery, which I remember more like the notes below than the bottle on the table before me. Premox from a 2011?? This bottle made it from OR-CA over a week in a cooler. I wonder if moisture broke the seal of the cork somehow.
