Wow what a nose, buttery, creamy and lots of hazelnuts, and it continued to open up. Palate nice and full that mirrors the nose, with layered honey developing. Very long finish of minerals and brioche. Drinking very well yet no rush to open.
1st of 6, decanted half hour, perfect cork and level - mid yellow, high glycerol; lemony, honeyed, some chalk, some tropical fruit; fullish bodied, rich and long, though properly dry, slightly awkward and almost oversized, tropical fruit, though in many ways like a larger scaled version of their Caillerets, which I prefer for current drinking. Mr W thought bottle flawed and showing incipient premox, though I'm not sure that with more time, this wine will tighten and focus, if so it could be very fine, currently a disappointing very good indeed (17/20).
Second time tasting this. Intense aroma of honey, butter, sugarcane, coconut, tropical fruit and caramel. It's too young now but it showed the potential of the wine. The palate was so deep, intense and complex but it did not fully open up due to insufficient aeration. It has long life ahead.
