Much like the btl tasted in January. Purchased locally in Feb at retail, the cork had a relatively high soak like a 10yr old+ btl that was a bit worrisome but, the wine was in great shape. Medium gold color. Again, lots of mouth coating minerality and obvious grand cru power. One more left that I'll drink this year or next given the cork condition on this btl.
Pale white gold translucent. Sea spray, lemon, lime aromas. Lemon, lime, orange mid palate, late medium minus mineral acidity refreshes into the long finish. Two hours open, the 2009 vintage carries a medium/ full bodied weight with a suppleness of delivery that is mouth filling enjoyment. Yet to earn its stripes as an aged Chablis, the years may build upon the ample fruit to showcase a more complete wine.
Fortunate to be able to try a couple of small pours of this wine over the last ~3 weeks with consistent results. Chiseled, brisk, laser focused, and beautifully balanced, delineated, and expansive with aromas and flavors of citrus/lime, green apple, and chalky minerals. Also on the nose, I picked up a distinctive, somewhat pungent note on the lower register that I couldn't quite place (was vacillating between iodine and ginger root, of all things). Picks up a bit of weight as it sits in the glass. Lovely wine.
