2009 Clos Nardian Blanc

NOSE: Expressive nose of white flower, citrus, mango, jackfruit, pineapple, toasted coconut, asparagus, hints of sweet spice... N...I...C...E!!

PALATE: citrus, pineapple, honey, present of minerality
high acidity, medium body, long and crisp finish ... well structured wine.
Lively nose of Riesling-like notes of petrol and almost Ouzo-like nose: sweet almond, sweet spice, star anise, Cinnamon, fennel... last but no least ripe stone fruit and honey

Palate: orange zest, kumquat, stone fruit, good acidity, high alcohol (14.5%) medium to full body, fennel, anise, strong minerality, white flower, sugarcane juice, chrysanthemum tea, a bit bitter then sweet finish.

This 10 years old wine has developed some amazing secondary notes, need time to open up (in fact taste rounder and purer after 24 hrs), no a crowd-pleaser... but for those who enjoy the complexity of life...

90 points
1st minute:
Nose: hint of berry, plum, tea leaf. Palate: very close, watery and the present of alcohol is the only think that reminds me this is a wine
1 hr in the glass:
Nose: dry leaf, gun powder, peppery. plum palate: high acid, tea leaf, soy sauce.
Day 2
Nose: black fruit, dry date, sweet spice, hint of white pepper.
Palate: savory and sweet at the same time, dry rose, day fruit, dry orange peel, high tannin, medium finish, balance. In short resurrected after 24 hours, no a big wine but a very decent one.
Day 3
Nose: plum, prune, sweet spice, coffee, cedar wood, dry leaf.
Palate: sweet black fruit, peppery, coffee, high tannin, not as good as day 2 but very good still.
Old Italian wine is very interesting and fun to drink if you got time.
