Once this got some air and warmed up a bit it was outstanding. Initially a narrow nose of lemon and honey. The palate was broad and rich with bright acidity, a mineral streak and of course buttered poporn. Really liked the citrus notes. Long finish.
Chateau Margaux vertical dinner with great whites and 2007 Rayas (Ruth Chris Tysons Corner, VA): I have had high rate of premox with Sauzet wines. This fortunately is a great bottle of wine, if anything too tight. I typically find noticeable sesame/toasted oak as well as very mineral expression in Sauzet and this is no exception. Honey followed by a hint of sesame, flint and lemon. Very powerful mineral driven wine with bright acidity. It is still very tight and perhaps five more years of cellaring will help.
