I opened this bottle on Christmas day and was somewhat disappointed. Since that time, it has been in the cellar under a Repour cork and tasted periodically. Tonight it started showing what I expected several weeks ago.
Deep old gold. Bright but mature. Mature but powerful Chenin Blanc smells and flavors. Very ripe pears, almond butter and honey. Sparkling acidity. The power and personality of Chenin Blanc with a pleasing touch of sweetness.
