    September 10, 2022 - With a vigorous decant before drinking. Bees wax bees knees plenty of stony brio, oak knitting nicely. I love white Bordeaux and this doesn’t disappoint at all. Drink and hold. Off list at Noreetuh. Deeeeelish.

    August 13, 2022 - Fresh and piercing acidity. Fruit fully alove. It’s so young you’d think it was current vintage.

    August 13, 2022 - Endelig kveld etter listing i gangen. Kraftig lukt med fyrverkeri, krydder og gulplomme. Kraftig smak med sitrus i alle former. Intens og flott syre. Flott og spennende vin. 1 dag i flaske: noe tydeligere parfymert særegen lukt og smak mot sitrus og smågodt

    July 23, 2022 - Really great. So complex. Cat pee, grass, hay, peach, pineapple, minerals, grapefruit, melon and some herbs and vegetables. Very nice structure - almost full bodied but not quite. Refreshing acidity. Very good

    July 2, 2022 - Past prime. Quite acidic on opening, softened over an hour. I have 3 more, wondering if I should decant it to freshen it up? I believe that I left it too long though
