The classic example of the style. Review bottle was about 1.5 years past bottling date. Cloudy, dull gold colored body; minimal head and retention; no real lacing to speak of. Lemony sourness and prominent oak dominate the aroma and flavor; green apples, moderate lactic notes and bretty funkiness starting to emerge; hints of hay and barnyard characteristics. Moderate wine-like tannins and other similarites, particularly in the prominence of the chardonnay-level oakiness and white grape flavor. Medium-light bodied, medium, crisp-feeling carbonation; clean and bone-dry despite a gentle sweetness in the initial tasting. Slight teeth-squeaking but hasn’t reached an extreme level at this point. Lots of complexity and just plain tasty. Wish I had a case of these to sit on.
