I see from my notes that I last tasted this 3 years ago, and noted the clean acidity and lime etc. The wine has evolved since then. It is much smoother, mellower and more rounded now. The fruit is still there - hints of pear and lime and very subdued grapefruit mixed with concrete and stone. If tasted blind, I might have thought it was a Savennières . Not sure how long one is supposed to keep these wines, but seems good so far. Overall a really nice wine.
this wine, which was very disappointing initially, is developing quite nicely--almost like a savinierre, with a nutty/oily/beeswaxy quality. still no comparison to the vastly superior 2004, but i'm looking forward to drinking me remaining bottles over the next 2-5 years.
