From magnum. Pale yellow. Medium-light body. Very floral and herbal, somewhat resinous and leesy, with fine acid skeleton for a '99. The particular northward exposure of the site seems to have helped. Still on the way up, at least in this format.
Delicious and incredibly complex. Nose of smoke, toast and jasmine. Upfront vanilla and gunsmoke (very light) which quickly passed into rich fruit with good acidic body. Smooth finish with some butter and lemon zest. Excellent wine overall. A little more time to round it off. Absolutely perfect pairing.
Paired: Salmon poached sous vide w/ fiddlehead ferns and sorrel sauce
