Fully mature, of course, but with splendid energy and depth. Very delicious indeed. While more and more fine white Burgundies, even those not prematurely oxidised, seem to give up the ghost after a dozen or so vintages, it is gratifying to be able to worship at the other end of a glass of a vigorous (almost) thirty year old riesling.
