No further comments about these original labels that we like so much. Colour: white wine. Nose: hyper chalky and lemony, totally raw, with some cut grass then. As we often write – maybe too often – it's got the purity that's to be found in Sancerre's purest sauvignons blancs. As we also sometimes write, it would cut you into halves (enough, S.) With water: raw wool, new sweater, plaster, fern, porridge…. Mouth (neat): a little hot and spirity at this point, but there's almost no need to add any water to find out about what's going to happen once water's been added (gee…) With water: pretty perfect, full of lemon liqueur, with green tea, more chalk, sourdough bread and green orange. Once again, wonderful purity. Finish: rather long, on pretty much the same notes. This hogshead was a quiet star. Comments: there was a 12 yo 2008 by Fable Whisky that was even better in my opinion, but this one's almost perfect. To be cellared for sure.
