better than my last bottle (4/6/13) in that it was lighter in color, younger and livelier than my last, and still very minerally but had good citrus fruit and an acid bite that was lovely... great bottle of pucelles (esp for 2005 which is a vintage i generally find too soft)
nice wine, not premoxed but some maturing going on, color wasn't dark but not light or bright either, nose was mineral / caramel, no whiff of fruit, palate very similar, loads of minerals but little to no fruit, interestingly Tiff liked it a lot (she usually doesn't like overly mature white burgs) and i liked less as it needed some lemon / fruit to tickle my fancy
Very forward and rich nose, not shy at all. Goes back and forth between which components dominate. There is a cool, herbal-mint-menthol aspect, bright lemon and creamy sweet lemonheads, a touch of sweet caramel that combines with the prominent oak, and a spicy brown element as well. The palate isn't quite as complex, with creamy sweet, but bright lemon, caramel, and spice. Finish shows lemon, mint and spice and is moderately long. This is not a subtle wine - it's big, generous and full flavored, verging on rich, but it's has solid structure, acid and stuffing so that's it is not overblown or heavy. Nose - 5/6, Palate - 5/6, Finish - 4.5/6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 1/2 = 15.5/20.
Yellow with traces of gold. Expressive aromas of orchard fruit and butter cream, with an exotic tropical fruit note, and just a hint of white flowers. This is round and rich in the mouth but maintains lightness. Fairly easy going and elegant with all the elements well integrated. This is really tasty. One left, which I'll hold for a year or two.
