MAR 10 Bright golden, absolutely fabulous! Complex, seductive, apricots, botrytis, such elegance, gorgeous structure, bready, or maybe more of biscuits, incredibly youthful, all of this, but the acidity? Well it kind of does the job, because it's never sticky, not even close. But it isn't fresh and lively either, and that is where it loses its marks for me, but still. 95
