Broadbentism: 1992 Leflaive Bienvenues Batard Montrachet

"Preceded by 1893 Ch d'Yquem (with foie gras) and followed by '26 Ch La Mission Haut-Brion, a rather bold, in fact essential divider. Served very cold. Light, malty, and opening up as it approached room temperature, revealing vanilla and a touch of honey; dry enough, firm, oaky Chardonnay flavour. It seemed to get sweeter on the nose and palate. Almost too sweet. At Christian Sveaas' great wine dinner in Oslo, April 1996.***" - MB
