This was very tight at first.  Probably should have decanted for an hour.  After a bit, it opened and was excellent.  Yellow/gold in color.  The nose is vanilla/lemon cream.  Although "Burgundian" certainly could be used, it is a pretty consistent nose from this vineyard.  On the palate, this has a creamy texture.  Nice lemon cream with a touch of vanilla and an underlying minerality. Great acidity.  Worked well with a wide variety of foods.  Very crisp.  Long finish.  Seems youthful and tight right now, probably best to wait a bit or give it plenty of air.  Best at around 50F or so (a slight chill).
