Based on 2014, it has a riotously attractive aroma and a richer, more patisserie palate; napped with Satsuma marmalade; more exotic, with a clinging brown-butter finish. I think the _____åaverage drinker,____? (whoever that person is_____) will like it even more. P___©ters does the _____åperpetual reserve____? with his NV, which means that the current wine is 50% of (the latest vintage) and 50% the previous blend, so today______s wine is half-2014 and half last year______s wine, which was half-2013 and half the previous year______s wine. The wisdom of this approach is manifest and tangible; it assures _____åhouse style____? without creating uniformity, because vintages differ. Rodolphe continues to clarify his preferences the longer we know each other. For example, he hates the _____åquince____? flavor and wants it nowhere near his wines. And he______s suspicious of the _____åsaffron____? descriptor because, he says, it results from botrytis, and he prefers his wine from pristine fruit. _____¬Terry Theise
