Wine Description

(From 2004 Vintage) Deep straw color with straw hue. Complex nose of nougat, honeycomb and yeast lees with restrained toasted oak end notes. The palate displays the elegance and finesse that is found in the best Puligny Montrachet. Layers of citrus, nougat and hazelnut are evident, followed by hazelnut and a hint of anise. Excellent length and depth. Very long aftertaste of citrus, nougat and hazelnut.

Winemaker's Notes

Pale white with youthful green hues - a sensational color for a three year old, belying its true age. The nose shows intense lifted aromas of oyster shell, melon, cumquat blossom with a subtle, cheesy nougat, almond slake complexity. The palate is deceptively substantial. The layered complexity is finely balanced with mineral and slate flavors. Intense quince, loquat and grapefruit flavors and mouth-watering acidity are balanced by chalky phenolics.
