Could not resist to try upon receipt. At first somewhat reticent, but with air pure crushed quartz and talcum powder come through. Fruits are pear/quince and subtle tangerine oil. The oak is very well integrated with just a touch of green tea and flowers. The palate is electric with superb acidity throughout that seem to saturate the palate conveying the strong mineral sensation, serious extract. Nutmeg complexes the flavors further. Finishes with powdery minerals and a suggestion of quinine. Super potential with this acid profile.
Quince and dried herbs and dried flowers. Subtle oyster shell notes and smoky minerals complex. With air, notes of quinine come out. Palate is super rich with an oily texture that is absolutely stunning. The quinine and pear skin/quince really stain the middle palate and finishes with a saline, piquant sensation. Really good right now.
At first showed some cellar funk, but with air had some deeper cherry notes with dried leaves, flowers and tar. Remarkably intense and oily on the palate with hints of bittersweet chocolate. Showing well, but could go for an additional 3-4 more years.
