(bottled in January of 2011): Good pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of quinine and lime zest. Concentrated and sweet; a bit creamier in the middle than the nose suggests, but then tightens up on the back half, showing strong iodiney oyster shell minerality and a smoky note. This precise, chewy wine is youthfully imploded today and will need aging. Finishes very long, with a whiplash of minerality tickling the retronasal passage. This boasts a remarkably light touch and outstanding finesse for 2009. Picq told me he'll be cellaring some magnums of this wine, along with his Derriere La Grange.
