Clear, deep yellow-gold colour, even to the rim. Aromas of buttered toast over some rich remaining peach (yellow) fruit. Mostly bouquet rather than aroma, suggesting developing through early maturity. Rich and full-bodied flavour with moderate acidity that overall knitted together to give a much more balanced and harmonious wine than its cousin the 1997 Clos du Ch. de la Maltroye previously tasted. In fact the first truly satisfying and pleasurable Côte d’Or white experience I’ve had. Drank also on my 29th birthday and went pretty well with cod in beurre blanc.
