Pale gold colour (hint of green there as well) with tiny bubbles.
Very fresh lemon-zest nose, with suggestions of the richness to come with age.
The mousse is softer than I remember. The palate is lovely and fresh but with hints of the nuances to come (it helped to try the '61 beforehand) - infant notes of heather & honey hiding behind the zingy lemon-lime fruit. Finishes with a really long zing. There's a long life ahead of this one.
Tasted at Naughton 9/8/2005.
