Maddeningly inconsistent...this was good but had some weird plasticky volatile stuff going on and also a bit oxidized

Rise Over Run

I don't think I've had an example of this wine vinified by Virginie until now. In my humble opinion, quality is WAY UP now. Too many pre-2006 examples were mealy, oxidized and awkwardly alcoholic. I'm glad to see one of the world's most enviable vineyard sites skew toward quality rather than simply bio-d dogma (again -- humbly opining).

The toast on this oak must ++. Burnt sugar, liquor finish, devastatingly interesting, lemon, slightly oxidized, wow.

Wonderful nose o apricot, pineapple n possibly citrus. Can’t find the saffron, but hey. Lovit. Loved other vintages more, though.

Amazing on day 2: wet earth, cheese rind, dirt, herbs, persillé, savory bomb, stony and almond finish. Acid. A big, concentrated and powerful Chenin. Nose still discreet in comparison to the burst on the palate.
