    June 7, 2019 - Dark fruit, leather, meat on the nose. What a difference a few years make. This wine has integrated and no longer tastes overoaked like a pencil. Ready for business. Rustic on the palate with dark fruit, graphite, meat. Fantastic with food - I went lamb chops.

    May 7, 2019 - OMG good!
    The tar! The minerals! The meats!
    The bacon!
    This is just right down my palate alley.
    I am so pleased that these jokers here wrote so many bad reviews. Great! Thank you! Please drink no more! Sell it to me.

    My case has dwindled, but the bottles are getting better!
    Vincent is master! I've got cases and cases of his wine.

    This is downright primal. It's like holding clay tablets, reading cuneiform about Enke and reminiscing on how the future must look, and how the skills of the day seeped through time to reach a Mistral swept valley to cross the Dureza with Mondeuze Blanche. What did Pliny think when he first put this crossing to his lips. Surely it must have been a similar experience to what I'm going through now: A connection across the ages in a sip, a swish, a gulp.
    Vincent achieves the real, the rustic. He captures that moment of rising from the dirt to become something else: That moment of washing the dust, of detangling the brambles, the annointing of sacred oil to emerge human. And at our birth is a chalice. Its contents must have tasted like this. We are now forever changed, and this taste is imprinted on our genetic memory.

    Thank you Vincent.

    April 5, 2019 - Last notes on 5/24/18. This bottle was a pop & pour and I must say it was way better than last bottle where I did a 3 hour decant. This one had much more vivacity, acidity and tannic backbone (albeit very soft tannins) versus the previous. It's still a 91 pointer for me but if you open one no need for air prep. Just pop and enjoy.

    April 5, 2019 - Rather flat. Not showing much fruit. Leather nose.
