The color is beginning to deepen and the nose has lovely notes of sweet corn kernel, chalky minerals, struck match and spearmint. More elegant than powerful but this is aging slowly and shows more concentration and complexity than a couple of years ago. Lots of gunflint and mineral flavors and quite authentic tasting if still a little shy. Will always be a lighter, finer and more elegant style.
Quite understated and still obviously young yet this wine offers a hint of its potential in the tingly, spicy finish. Made in a high-acid, restrained style but with good underlying chalky fruit, I believe this will blossom with a few more years of bottle age. 91+
Potent nose of sharp lemons and minerals. Quite young and tightly wound but classy and intense with a tremendous chalky, carbon minerality. Ultra-oily texture with strong acidity and real character of flavor. This is stony, pure CC that should age well. 92+
