Community Tasting Note

    January 26, 2020 - First time drinking this wine. Not as giving on the nose as I might have guessed, but the palate was rich and luxurious. Perhaps lacking a little acidity compared to the best chards, this was nonetheless very enjoyable. A nice pairing with grilled colossal shrimp.

Serve at cellar temperature not colder. The nose will be more opulent and the palate more layered. Cheers!
