Tasting Notes

Deg 9/2015, it’s from a “ridiculous blend” of two tiny parcels in Oger and Avize. Like many (most?) 2009s, what seemed rather heavy-footed 1-2 years ago is starting to slim down and find its chalky essence; it’s more savory than flowery, extremely salty and melty, like a roux of corn flour and clotted butter. Time will tell with this beauty. —Terry Theise
