PnP. Perfect cork. Light straw color; immediate nose of chalk, sea air, limestone and citrus. On the palate this has an intense minteral taste with very bracing acidity. With air it develops a silky quality on the mid-palate and the acidity recedes somewhat. Still a baby and more classic than some other vintages of this bottling which sometimes has a more exotic character. This went beautifully with some grilled local halibut.
Opened for about 6 hours before dinner, with about a 30 minute decant. I enjoyed this wine, but not as much as Mr Meadows. Got a nice mouthful of lemon-lime cream and chalky minerals, but very little of the saline oyster shell that I love in chablis. Let's see how the next few bottles go...
PnP at a restaurant in a decent but not ideal stem. Eloquent exposition of minerals and fruit with a medium-long finish. Has lost some of its flinty, crystalline youthfulness for better or worse, most noticeably on the flatter than expected nose. The breadth and depth on the palate were impressive nonetheless. Kind of a tweener, no longer doing the limestone and lemon juice thing but not quite ready to fully spread its wings of maturity.
