Mid gold, hints of brown and green. Some grassiness, some flowers, some honey. Lovely rich mouth feel. Plenty of honey, beeswax, almonds, some light gooseberry,. Long. Someone said custard powder and rhubarb. Others noted the parallels with old white burgundies. Lovely wine. This bottle was good.
Decanted and drunk. Light gold. Honey. Beeswax. Lemon. Lovely texture too, solid body. Hazelnuts. Swirls and changes. Lovely complexity. Very long. And then a glass left for 24 hours in the decanter. Quite amazing. This was lighter in colour and fresher, cleaner fruit. Not quite sure how that happened. Seems like plenty of life left.
Excellent bottle, great condition. Light gold, darkening a bit over time. Plenty of fresh citrus, light honey, pear, hazelnuts. Lovely deep acidity. Great length. Maybe a very slight touch of a slightly medicinal bitterness at the end. But when the bottle is good the wine is great.
Starting to take on a golden hue, with notes of spice, olives, herbs, nuts and citrus. The wine seems to be tiring, ending with, orange, lemon, nuts and pears in the finish. I'd opt for drinking this sooner than later as it's starting to drop its fruit.
Firstly, I am happy to report that this was in perfect condition as there seem to be a lot of oxidised bottles knocking around. Light gold colour. The nose is dominated by buttered popcorn with some light honey, floral notes and lemon zest in the background. Waxy and rich on the palate although the finish is a little subdued. Good minerality, acidity and restraint. This came alive when paired with an unctuous Jerusalem artichoke risotto.
