From a bottle with a fully soaked cork and indications of seepage under the capsule. Not a whole lot of fruit, the nose has some spice and creamy elements. The palate is rich and buttery with a ton of spiky acidity that's not integrated or harmonious, but despite that the wine shows sneaky-good length. Kind of an odd one.
Tasted blind. Very impressive for its level, equaling or outperforming many Premier Cru and Grand Cru white Burgs tonight. Perfumed nose, classically Leflaive, with the oak very well integrated. Rich fruit just starting to mature, now entering a great drinking window.
Fierce acidity, with a bit of “gunpowder” to nose and finish. Deep and complex, needs to be quite warm or acidity is too overpowering. I find it intriguing, but many others would not. Better with food? No oxidation, holding up well.
