2004 Special Club, Paul Bara
The nose is steely and focused with notes of candied orange peel, hyachint, dark gravel, tangerines, bread and soap. A fine fruity character. With its 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, it has, right now anyway, more Chardonnay aromas than the other way around.
The taste is tight and, again, steely with notes of apricots, pears, lots of minerals and some soapy notes. A very high acidity, that makes the finish bone dry, a bit too much at this stages I think. Needs food. Good though.
