Thoughts on the white burg Premox issue?

Have an opinion?

The symptoms are obvious but speculation regarding root cause run abound.

It is a very popular and sometimes painful topic for many on Wineberserkers.

Well, I don’t. I drank a lot of White Burgundies in the 70s and then sort of lost interest except for Chablis, which I drink a lot of. I prefer the style of William Fevre, which is classic and unadorned, over the more elaborated trying-to-be-Montrachet styles that emerged in the 80s and have to a great extent died back down.

I have heard an awful lot of muttering about White Burgundy premature oxidation (I guess that’s what you mean by “premox”), but I’ve never had somebody pour me a wine that illustrates the problem.
