    March 21, 2020 - This was aromatically inexpressive and very bright when first opened, but an hour in the decanter at cellar temperature really opened it up. Color is light gold. The nose is very floral, along with some pithy citrus fruit and stone dust. Very compelling. The palate is clear and focused, with wonderful fruit and mineral extract at the core and a strong acidic spine. Long finish unfolds the floral and mineral flavors. This bottle showed very very well and bodes well for continued positive development.

    February 23, 2020 - PnP. Starts with lemon on the nose, gets some flowers and grapefruit with some air. On the palate high acidity, nice bitter note, good concentration, medium to long finish. Has a good structure for a great future, its already very good but not great yet, needs another 2 to 3 years in the cellar, the basic wine of the same vintage makes more fun now, but this will change with time. Matches with sea food.

    February 2, 2020 - This was great. More heft than I expected, but the mineral core had enough acid/energy to avoid being heavy. White stone fruits with a bit of tea or herbal edge to it.

    November 17, 2019 - Bon vin d’une belle complexité pour accompagner un bon repas. Beaucoup de matières et amplitude en bouche. Il est plus exubérant en bouche qu’au nez. Le niveau d’acidité est bien équilibré avec des saveurs d’agrumes matures et une belle fraîcheur légèrement mentholée. Bien apprécié!
