A virtual Northern Rhone tasting last night with w+a, VinT and bman. A few other forumites joined the festivities a bit later including otw, gman, bomba, xhoser and basecadet.

My contribution: 2011 M. Chapoutier Le Meal Blanc

Deep golden honey colour. Delicious and beautifully balanced. Honeydew melon, pear, vanilla, almond paste, and a judicious level of waxiness.

I found a 2012 Domaine Durand Cornas Empreintes in the cellar. Apparently I never recorded the purchase so it was a happy discovery. 

Decanted forabout 90 minutes and this exceeded expectations by a wide margin.  Blood & rusty iron on the nose but lithe and silky on the palate with a lingering finish  Wish I had more, because this will only get better from here.
