A little worried, as the cork showed some signs of seepage and there was a little bit of mold growth, but the wine was fine. Very ripe fruit - lives up to the "Clos de la Brulee" moniker - this is bursting with buttery baked apple and pear aromas and flavors, more akin to big California chards than the Chalonnaise, but has just enough acidity to stay fresh on the back end. A nice effort for a tricky vintage. Drink it now through next year
