Served blind. Deg second quarter 2010. Pale golden, small bubbles. Yeast, brioche, oxidated apples, nuts, minerals and plaster. Fresh acidity, lighter mousse, caramel, oxidated apples, bit bitter and not fully blalanced, burnt caramel notes, bitter tea. Bit hollow. With answer in hand I think its a faulty bottle. 87
