Got to pop some special bottles when my good friend Shawn came in to town! My second bottle to pop of the evening. In my experience with PM, this seems to be the most elegant/finesse bottle I’ve had. Of guessing blind, I think I would have gone to burgundy. And it has sub 14 ABV! I always assume PM is ripe, rich and full bodied but this was restrained. On the nose it was very tropical showing stone fruits, mango, sugar crusted guava and ginger shavings. Reminiscent of Aubert’s Larry Hyde & Sons Chardonnay on the palate as the acidity is really energetic. Crushed limestone, powdered lemon bar and a cotton candy like sweetness toward the finish. No problem popping these now.

For some reason I was getting floral pear. I don’t recall getting that on an Aubert before

A very nice full bodied Chardonnay, but not worth the price tag in my opinion.

Fruity smell. “Flinstone vitamin “ smell. :-). Middle of mouth taste. Slight spice in taste.
