Last of my bottles, and another excellent showing. Ripe peach and citrus fruit flavours over a bed of stones and mineral salts, with air bringing out more complex herbal and faint floral elements. Powerful and dry without ever feeling austere, and very well balanced.
Outstanding purity and mineral sense of place, immaculate style and balance, harmonious, ripe fruit with elegant acidity, hint of spontaneous fermentation aromas, clean flavours, effortless finesse, lovely length. To be enjoyed in its first decade.
the nose is a little bit closed, the palate is mouthfilling, fullbodied, vibrant acidity, more citrus notes than exotic fruits, in the finish fine pineapple notes, unripe fresh passionfruit, mineralic, at least 10 more years, the most potential now 92, in 5 years 95? or more
Two possibilities; this is an off bottle, or the wine is in a dumb phase. Tropical fruits and minerals in the bouquet. Same on the palate but elegant and lean this time. By far not the 95 – 98 I scored this wine before. No score for tonight, but I have a few, so there will be a follow up.
