Minière Symbiose 2008

50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonnay. 100%old oak with no MLF. Disgorged June 2017 with 2.5g dosage. Immediately quite open and oxidative now, wild stewed apples, toasty buttery frangipane and pear with some sweeter peach. Seemed a bit dried-out and tired here, so it went by a bit quietly in the lineup – I tasted this in the middle of the year and liked it, but this disgorgement was not showing especially freshly on this occasion. Still, I’d like to try some newer wines from this producer as there’s definitely something good going on.
