Earthy and minerally, an austere Chard by today’s standards, with a thyme and tobacco edge to the modest peach fruit. My bias is for either impossibly rich, oaky Chards or sleek, fruity, unoaked ones. This falls between those goal posts.
Something went south on this wine. It has a stubbornly vegetal or moldy note throughout, to the detriment of the fruit, which seems to be rich, and the oak, which certainly is. Tasted in a flight of its price peers, it was a big last place.
