After so many off bottles of Fevre this was a nice surprise. Lots of secondary characteristics (honey, something leaning towards butterscotch) but still a good amount of bright citrussy fruit. Not deep or profound--too rounded off for that (little discernible minerality, stoniness, salinity). A nice wine that merits the $25 or so I paid for it.
Yeah, well, there ya go. To be fair, this got a lot more interesting overnight in the refrigerator. It added appreciable depth as well as a savory quality that strikes me as very appealing at the moment. I presume this is a candidate for further age, assuming a bottle that has not already spoiled.
This wine was taken from my cellar and consumed at a beach barbecue, primarily as an aperitif. A formal note was not written, but it can be said that the wine was delicious, with crisp acidity, good minerality and a long finish. It should drink well for at least another 3-4 years. Drink now-12/14.
