Description: 2006 Matassa Blanc is scented with green tea, lime, white peach, and ocean breeze. This vintage benefitted from Lubbe's decision that this cuvee could in general use more time on its lees, and it was only bottled after 14 months in (largely older) barrels. The result - when compared with the 2005 - is a smoother texture and an enhancement of the resemblance to Chablis in the form of shrimp shell reduction, subtle salinity, and crushed stone character, and it finishes with ravishing yet subtle persistence rather than the obviously gripping intensity of its 2005 counterpart. I would want to follow this for at least another 3-4 years.
