A Visit to the Dark Side

The third wine to lose its cork on Sunday was a 2007 Macon Charnay Les Chenes from Domaine Manciat Poncey.

This followed on the heels of a rather disappointing Grenache Blanc discussed in the previous post.  Little did I expect that the Grenache Blanc would be the superior wine.

The Macon was oxidized in the nose and in the taste.  After two minutes in the glass it moved from oxidized to caramelized.  It was as though someone dropped a caramel candy into the glass and it dissolved in the wine.

Bad bottle so there's little else to say.
