2005 Jomain, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Les Combettestry to find this wine...
A medium lemon yellow colour and a nose of citrus width, though never developing anything other than a little brioche depth. The palate is a mouth-full and initially reasonably textured, but as it slowly slides to the finish there is a little oaky texture and a lot of oak flavour. Despite concentration and intensity I’m currently missing freshness and a 1er cru mid-palate dimension. It’s a little one-dimensional and far from mouth-watering. I wouldn’t open another for 2-3 years to let the oak subside and hopefully unleash the wine within. If the oak just neads time, where will the freshness come from(?)
Rebuy – Maybe

I won’t quite describe it as humble pie, but after 48 hours in the refridgerator, there’s a nice extra creamy dimension on the nose and palate, and that oak has largely melted. I’d still like more acidity but this is at least a ‘maybe’ now…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
