An immature, pale yellow color. Ripe, intense nose: white and yellow orchard fruit, narcissus, gingerbread, distilled hazelnut and barrel tones. More pheromony and granular on the palate, medium-full: Nashi pear, peach, bergamot and buttered corn, lightly touched in baking spice. Extract-rich and texturally more akin to Meursault: soft pillows, velvet and cream. Becomes more aristocratic as it goes; comes more into focus, the layers attaining a more chiseled detail, as we drank over the three+ hours it was opened. Some depth. Very good Combettes. Will come around shortly; don’t push it past ten years, ideally between five and eight. Now – 2020.
