Bright lemon core with a clear meniscus. Matchsticks, stoned fruits and fresh lemon peel on the nose with an underlying tone of cream and melon skin. Quite lemony on the palate with very good acidity and structure. Oak profile was definitely there but not overpowering. You’ll probably think I’m crazy but I took a bite of the gingernut cookies I had and it didn’t clash with the wine 🙂 I was, however, surprised to find a diam cork closure on the higher-end bottlings from this negociant since I don’t remember seeing one on their various 2006 bottlings. Sigh.
