A solid lightish burg. Fairly tight - as in unrevealing - with tart one-dimensional fruit - both nose & taste. Very nice but not stellar. I will leave my last bottle for a few more years to see if it opens more.
Having just sent back a previous bottle I was reluctant to do the same with this one, which was awful too. Not obviously corked, and had a very distinct bouquet of smoke and pine needles; intriguing at first but offensive after half a glass. Thin mouth feel with slightly unbalanced acidity and a bricky aftertaste. I left most of the bottle. Such a shame after 8 years of cellaring and a trip around the world...
Ordered this at PLAY in Ottawa. Very nice wine to start the small plate menu. Light, floral with red fruit. A little bit of heat - we didn't decant and it is still young. Went will with most of the food. Would like to come back to this in a few years.
