  • 88 Lafon Perriers. Speaking of letting wine sit. I wasn't going to post this because when i did open this wine it was just dead. Just a deep golden color scared me. Nose was slightly corky sweet. It was just flabby sloppy on palate with some bretty off flavors. No acid to speak of. I wanted to pour out. It was a gamble buying this but I've had some trans-formative experiences with this same case lot. This one just didn't do it. So I put a cork in it and tried it today. Much better experience. The nose never came around. its still carmelized corn with slight corky sweetness. off putting. However on the palate its tight clean grippy with mouth puckering acid. actually decently enjoyable now.

  • Rare treat to drink perrieres. This is much more flinty than charmes. It has more aromatic sulfur matchsticks on the nose. Wine is sweet with high acids and clean lengthy finish. It's not dead by any measure. This is on day 2 since opening.

  • deep oxidized nose very golden in color. doesn't have the freshness but minerality still alive. a heavy wine better as it opens up.

  • Now that's something. Actually needed a bit of time in the glass to come together. Fabulous nose of almonds, marzipan, white flowers and a touch of citrus. Palate doesn't disappoint. Very long. Yet another reminder of how fantastic aged white burgundy was before the curse of the POX.
