It was a sheer vinfanticide to consume a bottle of this last Friday night but it’s under cork and my life is too short for the experience of sporadic oxidation…not to mention the fact that oxidation is far from sporadic when it comes to aged white Burgundy sealed with cork.
Shy aromas but intense and lactic in the mouth. It immediately becomes more taut and incisive once you swallow. Lemon citrus with an orange tinge, green pear, sea spray and a garnish of mild micro herbs. It’s got that struck flint verging on smoke thing happening and there’s some chalky texture as the flavour pierces the back-palate. Delicious now but I do wish it were sealed in a manner that allowed me to cellar it with confidence. 94+
