light gold colour. Nose offers up citrus ++. On palate nicely made with again dominant lemon flavours and some oak. Very nice cleansing acidity. Lacks fruit and intensity and finish for a PC but excellent for a BOURGOGNE.
A little better than last bottle, think the additional year in the cellar helped. Great honeyed pear and apple on the nose. Taste had apple, pear, with a slightly heavier body than I remember. A little fuller and more fleshed out. A hint of caramel? light oak, and great acidity with a very nice finish.
Damn, this is so good, better than the last bottle a year ago and I have to kick myself repeatedly for not buying a 1/2 case of this wine. About 30 mins of air, put a chill on it, drank excellent. Lemon peel, sliced green apple, some pear and strong slate notes. My son in law who was drinking it with me noted a lemon meringue on the finish, which is a very nice description. I'd add that this meringue comment should not be taken as sweet or dessert-like, which this wine is not. It's clean, refreshing, shows terrific delineation. Could be mistaken for a Chablis blind. Excellent and even more astonishing, 20 bucks. I just hope the 2009 doesn't lose the delineation that this 2008 packs.
