Drank over three days, and it was virtually unchanged by the last glass. If I had another bottle, I'd wait a couple of years to open it, to see how different it is from age 6, with no worries at all about it holding up.

A beacon of citrus, fine acidity, and then a finish that is like rolling small pebbles around in your mouth. This has been consistently excellent and proven to be a great bargain. I think that this bottle was the best so far.

    May 8, 2016 - 91-92. Out of a 375. Penetrating Lemon zest on the nose up on open. Strong chalky, mineral streak. Wonderful persistence in the mid-palate, fully energized without being over ripe. Very precise and delineated citrus flavors, with a long lingering finish. Entering its window, with a good long life ahead.

    April 10, 2016 - Vin qui était dans ma cave depuis quelques années. Je l'avais aimé en jeunesse mais ce soir il se livre vraiment sous son véritable jour. Un vin avec des notes légères de citron au nez avec un fond de fleur blanche. C'est en bouche que la magie opère. Une volupté, une longueur et une puissance sur le citron confit, une belle minéralité enrobe le tout. Ce producteur mérite qu'on attende ses vins. 92 sur 100.
