Tasting notes

27/01/2011

Light colour; quite a delicate nose, and lovely ethereal quality to the wine. Very elegant, with minerality and acidity and a refreshing elegance, with a long delicate finish. The wine has just been bottled and needs time to develop in bottle, though it seems very accessible already. Drink 2014-2019. (18 points)

Light colour; quite a delicate nose, and lovely ethereal quality to the wine. Very elegant, with minerality and acidity and a refreshing elegance, with a long delicate finish. The wine has just been bottled and needs time to develop in bottle. Winemaker Didier Séguier suggests the 2009s will be drinking well in 3-5 years since they have softer acidity than 2008. Certainly, this Preuses seemed very accessible already. Drink 2014-16 (before the 2008s).(18 points)
