Spicy, clean, focused and long; lovely with appetizers. Drink now.
2000 Thomas, Pinot Noir:
Youthful with a substantial salty-mineral element on the nose and palate, crisp acidity, elegant fruit, good length. Good now but, likely, better later.
2002 Dom. Chantemerle (Boudin), Chablis Fourchaume:
Viscous but delineated, layered but integrated, intense without being overdone; and utterly Chablis. All the paradoxes and balance of a great wine in its youth.
N/V Zardetto, Proseco:
Light, barely sweet and zesty, medium bead, good acidity, and terrific with sweet potato soup.
2002 Terres Dorees (Brun), Beaujolais L’Ancien VV:
Like it was bottled yesterday with no hint of reduction and plenty of acidity. Solid but showing young. Hold.
2004 Dom. Pepière (Ollivier), Muscadet Clos des Briords VV:
Clean, precise, perfumed and mouth-watering; like drinking from a mountain stream. As it warms, it takes on more character and depth but retains focus. Still showing very young but surely one of the finest white wines I have had in some time. Breathtaking.
