This was an extreme wine. So minerally and brothy that it's hard to believe grapes had anything to do with it. Not my cup of tea, but I know several wine geeks who would love this style.
Medium light, pewter-inflected gold color. Nose very closed the first day, even with pouring through a Vinturi. Day 2 the nose was more extroverted, smelling like an emulsion of freshly-pulverized limestone dust, chicken broth, and tart green apple/lemon peel. Quickly attacks the palate with very lean, minerally, straw-tinged earthy and brothy flavors. The mineraliness clings long in the mouth, and there's good acidity (duh), but where's the fruit? Mineraliness is great as a complexity-adder, but there's got to be fruit there to add to. Right now, this is a C-. But I've experienced white burgundies that blossom from green and closed to real beauties in 2 or 3 years. I don't know if this is one, but it's probably better to wait and hope than drink now. Was $22 from WTSO.com.
