2004 Baron Thenard, Montrachet;
Decanted for two hours. Pale golden, diesel, as intence as ever, not petroleum like riesling, pure diesel, then some honey and floral notes behind, then intence of minerals and barrel. Smokey, smoked salmon, wax, oily, low acidity. 83
Terroir? When you taste this wine, your pretty shure terroir has everything to do with man, and nothing to do with nature and location. This wine is a far cry from Ramonet or Sauzet, not even resembling them. Tasted blind, Rhone was on almost everyones lips. How can you question the worlds most highly praised vineyard?
