Bright yellow with a golden tinge; much lighter than the 2007. Sexy highly nuanced nose combines white peach pineapple iodiney minerality musky ginger and leesy nuances all lifted by a floral topnote; like a hypothetical blend of Meursault and Chassagne. Densely packed brisk and deep with lovely racy acidity and a rocky element giving a light touch and impressive energy to the flavors of citrus and stone fruits nutmeg and minerals. Finishes very subtle and very long with excellent grip. This has all the elements to please the Burgundy lover-and all in an understated way. 92 points
