White Burgundy (@Private location): Glass: Riedel Vinum Syrah Double decanted Clear, medium lemon golden color. Clean, fully developed medium- intense nose with some limestone, citrus fruits, hints of oak and butter. Dry, medium acidity, full bodied, medium intense flavors with lots of salt, limestone and hints of oak in the long finish. Beautiful Burgundy at its peak where it will stay for the next 5+ years.
Incredibly balanced wine opened on new year's to rave reviews. Completely beautiful with not a hair out of place and speaking in a reassured white burg voice. Either there is terrific bottle variation with this wine (including some premoxed bottles but not this one) or it is just hitting its stride. Either way, I was glad to have it.
A very enjoyable bottle that went well with a cold shellfish buffet. Straw yellow in color with a nice floral nose. Delicious palate of butter, minerals and a hint of lemon. Smooth as silk with not a hint of premox. According to Coates, this wine sees no new wood. It seems that I like this better than most CT raters, but my wine buddies enjoyed this as well. Is it worth the price--probably not, but very enjoyable nonetheless.
A 7-8 years old Lafon and it's not oxidised. Horray! Lovely deep nose of butter, citrus, rubber and a sweet underlaying fruity core. Fat attack but very good acidity balancing it nicely. Finish carried by the buttery fatness. Very good showing today!
