Superbe tenue, plein de fraîcheur, encore bien droit, offrant des notes de fruits jaunes et blancs, des arômes de noisette et d'amande verte, touche miellée, boisé intégré, bel éclat visuel, superbe longueur, belle matière dans un ensemble intégré qui saît demeurer frais et élégant. Probablement à son apogée.
Not oxidized. I have had a case since release with no problems (though a 2000 Criots Batard I have had since release was oxidized a couple years ago). Nose of roasted pear/apple with plenty of stony minerality and some notes of butterscotch, cream and oak-influence spice. Medium-bodied on the palate with reminiscent of apple pie with a medium-long mineral/cream finish. Down to my last couple of bottles and this is almost perfectly integrated at this point. Delicious.
Bottle is showing some degree of oxidation, particularly when I compare to my notes from 5 months ago. Color is normal. It was reasonably concentrated with good length when first opened, with just a slight hint of burnt match smell that worried me. An hour later, the wine is much flatter with no finish. Second oxidized 2002 Lamy in two days.
