The Classic Cuvée 2014 was in good shape, its creamy baked pears and lemon posset Chardonnay having relaxed a bit since last tasting. There’s an intriguing aniseed/fennel note there and a breezy, cool stroke of acidity that made me wonder if Sugrue had blocked some malolactic, as he often does. Almost glassy in texture, if feeling a touch hollow. Nice grapefruit bitters on the finish.
