Moral of the story: I told you so
I was certain that the newly opened bottle was of the "C" Chardonnay and it received remarkably similar notes and the same score as earlier. The re-corked bottle was recognized as Israeli, "probably" the "C" Chardonnay but my guess was that this was the wine of 2001 or 2003, both of which excellent in their youth, maintaining that excellence but now in a "drink up" condition.
