Community Tasting Note

  • MJReb wrote: 87 points

    January 31, 2020 - Deep yellow, quite advanced, pure apple taste, nice salinity, but borderline to oxidation. I do not know why, but as good Baudry makes the reds, as borderline his whites are. At least 1 of 3 bottles are more advanced as they should be.

Is there any possible storage or provenance explanation (poor storage at retailer, etc)? I have not had any issue with anything close to oxidation in the bottles in my cellar.
    Cheers!

I always take mainly reds but also 6 bottles of la Croix boissée back home. I take care about the temperature during the trip and my celler in an old French house does not go higher than 20 deg C max in summer. So, no idea about the variations of the bottles. I know 2 other persons which have the same issue with these wines. In general, we Open them early and we have less worries. Cheers, Markus aka MJREB.
