    December 25, 2020 - Grass, passion fruit, elderflower, dandylion, a little cream. Very precise on the palate, gooseberry on the attack with lovely, flinty minerality on the mid-palate on finish. High acidity but not searing or out of control. Excellent.

    December 7, 2020 - On the first night this was a disappointment, particularly against the $50 USD price tag. Austere, rigid. Some fruit, but dominated by rocks and minerals. I was getting hints of honey and citrus, but it was not very expressive. A couple nights later the ~half+ bottle was much better. The front end was still flinty, cracked quartz, dry and wet granite, and then orchard blossoms, but then transitioned into a building richness of honeyed ripe citrus and wildflowers flowing to a very long finish. Still not particularly deep, but very fine. Not sure how to 'score' this. Very, very good on the 2nd night, but does it rise to 'excellent' for me. Not now. We'll see how the other bottle does in the future...

    For now, on the first night QPR was quite bad and on the second night QPR was OK, but still stretched.

    Update: Scanning some other notes it seems that others have found a richer, more forward wine that I have. Hmmm....

    October 31, 2020 - Citrus with light lemon and green apple with subtle cashew and light petrol. Lovely minerality on the palate. Beautiful, easy drinking wine with elegance and grace.

    October 2, 2020 - Vin spécial, au nez beaucoup de menthe, sève de connifère, bouche très ordinaire, je m'attendais à un sancerre village de 30-40$...

    2/5

    September 30, 2020 - Un nez très exhubérant et complexe après un début bizarre un peu, Litchi, pommes verte, touche de noisettes et de menthe, du buis finit par se pointer. Bouche avec beaucoup d’acidité, une certaine amertume, longueur moyenne, au jour deux est bien meilleur avec plus de précision pour monter plus vers 89 pts que 87-88.
