This wine has a reputation of being a bit oxidized and advanced in 2014. This bottle was a bit advanced but it was also spot on drinking right now. Medium golden in color. The nose has anjou pears along with minerals and a salinty which is very nice. This has a slightly oily texture. The pears continue and if this has any oxidation, it is quite small. There is good acidity. Nice finish. Enjoyed with a Ginger Parsnip Pear soup, this was a perfect match with a nice synergy. It might not make old bones, but it is drinking quite well right now.
