Perfectly, seamlessly integrated. A toasty middle with gorgeous salinity on the beginning and especially ending where the complexity really shines. Some traits of a top vin jaune. Paired great with the freshest salmon, smokey lentils, and of course fiscalini cheddar at Camino.
Agree with TLV- best bottle yet; a bit more freshness than the last couple. Orchard fruit, toasted oak is integrated and shows as burnt marshmallow and caramel. Long finish. Excellent match with the sweetbreads.
Opened by Allred at Anvil. This wine is a treat to drink. I've had this four times now, and this was the best showing for me. All of the best of the previous bottles in one tidy package. It just seemed complete last night.
Deep golden color, appears very advanced. Notes of toast, butterscotch, roasted caramel apple, quince and fog with a toasted marshmallow note too. Baked apple, marshmallow and fig notes on the palate, with a subtle hazelnut tone. 91 on its own, a couple of points better paired with the sweetbreads, this made for a perfect match.
