    January 5, 2021 - Tasted blind. Fragrant nose of oranges, minerals, and a hint of white pepper. Nice acidity on the palate with citrus flavors, crushed rocks, and a bit of melon. Nice finish. Lovely, fresh wine, drinking very well right now.

    September 25, 2020 - Clear pale lemon

    Floral
    Lemon, lemon zest? Lemon pith?
    Mineral, crushed shells/chalk
    Tropical fruit


    Dry
    Med body
    Med+ acid
    Short refreshing finish
    Med alcohol, maybe 13? A tad high.
    Tastes like ripe tropical fruit
    Tannins on the gums from old oak?

    If I wasn't already hungry, I would be after this wine. Very enjoyable.

    September 10, 2020 - Agree with RWG's note. Spot on now. With the clairette component I don't see it keeping its essential spine for much longer.

    July 10, 2020 - Acidity and absence of subtlety; could it have been flawed?

    May 4, 2020 - Every time i see this wine, i buy a few bottles.
    While i am never entirely satisfied, i keep thinking the next bottle will have more spine, more cut and more nerve. Its never less than a nice white bandol, so maybe i will leave it at that. And that nose is really something.

    Drink or hold to 2028
