Suggestion from October 22 2014
Wine: 2008 St. Véran "Clos de Poncetys"
Producer: Domaine Guffens-Heynen
Comment: Like the Bourgogne, the nose displays lactic notes and is also reduced [which is not uncommon when lactic notes are present]. The lemony flavors though are precise and possess ample cut on the mouth coating and long finish. This too will need to be cleaned up yet this already seems relatively obvious that the quality will make it to the bottle. Benefit of the doubt extended.
Score: 90-92 Drink: 2013+
