This was poured from a magnum that was disgorged in 2003. It has a nice coppery colour, with massive, nettly, oxidised nose with brioche and nutty notes, but still that tight lemony core. The palate has a hugely complex, multi-layered personality, with all sorts of truffle, herb and mineral, stony flavours. Deliciously like an aged white Burgundy in its marriage of toast and striking minerality. A tip from Ghislain de Montgolfier, who says: "Buy the 2007 when it is released - we were totally influenced by the 1988 when we made it. Tom Cannavan
