David's last btl tonight and in amazing pristine condition at almost 15yrs old. Pale green gold color. Crystalline precision, penetrating minerallity, citrus and driving acidity. This is the whole package with no signs of fading anytime soon. I have one left and may wait till its 20th Birth on 2020. Upward and onward.
Pristine bottle. Pale yellow. Aromas of lemon peel, stone and quinine. Oak is more apparent on the long finish, but there is enough stuffing to result in a harmonious wine. What a treat after more than 14 years.
Maderized. What a terrible night of wine: three bottles opened, two flawed and one that's just not good. There was a difference of opinion as to whether or not this bottle truly was defective, but to me it's a no brainer: heat/overripe fruit on the nose and virtually no acidity or structure on the palate. This lacked the backbone of even a village Chablis, to say nothing of a Grand Cru. Quite disappointing having tasted this bottle at its best a number of months ago. Not rated.
Medium gold. Integrated harmonious flavors, stony w floral and tropical fruit notes. Getting time to drink as it was not as lively as previous bottles, but still very good. A second bottle had more butter and stone in it, and perhaps slightly more mature. Time to drink these, but very enjoyable now.
