Golden rich colour. Nose is waxy, lemon zest, honey, minerals, some salinity, some almond, hint of acacia and a light maple syrup – a Mia Farrow nose.
Medium to full bodied, not reflecting what I expected from a hotter vintage. Slightly oily mouthfeel, candied lemon, linear, not too much acidity, reasonable balance, concentrated but slightly
subdued. Lingering waxy lemon curd is there, starting to emerge. Really intriguing, had the whole table talking. The ris de veau to accompany it… Very good.
Served in Le Chaudron restaurant Tournon.
