Not quite what I remember it being on release when I devoured several bottles in a hurry. Soft and balanced but lacking the prior depth and charge. The cork was incredibly tight and stuck and I almost reached for a wrench before it finally broke free. Still... enjoyed by all four of us as a kick-off to a great night of wine.
This does keep getting better over the years. Over the four bottles I purchased in 2009, I have one left. This wine has a very pronounced presence. About 10 years on the lees, it tastes that it has been there. Very biscuity, there is little butter but rather a sharpness to the mouthfeel that I find nicely attractive.
