|Popped and poured from 375. A bit a funk and VA blew off after 10 minutes. Nose of marmalade with a hint of nuttiness, perhaps due to the recorking in 2005. An explosive palate of orange zest, pineapple, tropical fruits, and creme brulee, with balanced acidity. The long finish was not at all cloying.
This keeps getting better in the glass, and I will revisit it repeatedly, as I only poured a small taste before recorking and refridgerating the bottle.
For now, 87 for the nose, 94 for the palate.
Now we`re talking! This not only held up for 5 days in the fridge, it became much more expressive and balanced. A rich golden color; nose of botrytis, orange marmalade, and nuts; palate has flattened a bit, losing the notes of tropical fruits, however the lovely finish just goes on and on... Quite rich and sexy, but not so complex. The wine is now integrated to a solid 92, and is very pleasing to drink.
