Community Tasting Note

  • ProfAvi Likes this wine: 90 points

    August 20, 2020 - I bought a case of this wine as it got a great write up in Decanter.
    Lovely pale lemony-straw color, melon, white peach, pear on the nose; rich smooth creamy toasty mouthfeel. A zip of green apple acidity keeping it in check.
    Paired surprisingly well with a courgette, mozzarella and sausage pasta.

    It was a surprise that after dinner the wine improved - the finish goes on and on. More balance now after a couple of hours almost Burgundian.

    According to Decanter, outstanding and just at the beginning of its drinking window.

    If drinking now it will benefit from a decant.

    It's not outstanding at the moment but very nice, with a great PQR.

    In Burgundy this would be double the price.

    90 now but I expect that it can only get better.
