Community Tasting Note

  • rosenst1 wrote: 92 points

    July 3, 2015 - PnP. Perfect cork. Light straw color; immediate nose of chalk, sea air, limestone and citrus. On the palate this has an intense minteral taste with very bracing acidity. With air it develops a silky quality on the mid-palate and the acidity recedes somewhat. Still a baby and more classic than some other vintages of this bottling which sometimes has a more exotic character. This went beautifully with some grilled local halibut.
