95 Points

Monday, January 14, 2013 - (NewYear Brunner w Mandy, Grace, Justina, Adel & Geoff @Mich&Bo's) Glowing golden in glass. Rich, oily nose of melons, oystershell, savory distant rockpool, pine resin and general chard funk. The taste followed tightly on with a complex structure of concentrated honey, white florals, oily butter, fresh sandalwood and cedar shavings, saffron and cardammon, along with hints of banana. Full, great concentration, with well integrated layers of stuff going on, held tall with light youthful acidity and oily viscosity, showing shale minerality and light hay and dried summer flowers on the finish. Liquid gold, well aged. Textural, this was toe-curlingly perfect with Bo's incredible crackling pork belly and the super creamy salmon sashimi. Incredible stuff - easily stands shoulder to shoulder with white burgs in weight and complexity, balance and finesse. Refreshing and exciting!
