Starting to show more mature notes. The mousse was quite soft, but still definitely present. Golden in colour, with a nose that could (almost) be believed to be from a well aged Mount Eden Chardonnay. Would be interesting to try in 5 years time, this is still improving. 92-93 points.
Ch˙ Xī (除夕) Dinner at Home for Chinese New Year (Our House, Hong Kong): Drop-dead gorgeous as always....and it really benefits from serving in a smallish White Burgundy glass. Vibrant mousse and very persistent tiny pinprick bubbles. Gorgeous nose of fresh straw, Granny Smith apples and just a hint of brioche. Succulent, fresh and mouthwatering on the palate. Some resonance is beginning to develop with age but this can only continue to get better over the next 3-5 years at a minimum.
