    July 12, 2021 - 93pts (after decanting). Bottle #3102 according to its rear label. It is still very young - so make sure to decant it. But after some air there were lots and lots of notes: mint, Sicilian lemon, green pineapple, grapefruit, and lime. Bone dry, with a medium body and with good spiciness. This is not really a wine of minerality, but it is long. I'd rather let it rest for 5+ years before opening another bottle.

    July 19, 2020 - Paired with sichuan dinner- crisp acidity cut very well through the peppercorns and cumin.

    Still at the beginning of his wine career but very drinkable. I'm a big fan of the acidity driven and austere vintage. Still a lot to come but even now balanced. Powerful with a lot of grip and salinity. 93+

    January 17, 2020 - Elegant, balanced, mineral nose and rewarding taste. Already very good. Beats the Bassermann-Jordan GG we tasted at the same time hands down.

    December 4, 2019 - Pungent notes of grape skin, lime flower and fresh bay leaf. Round but well delineated palate. Great thrust and drive. I haven't had this before so I was happy to try it. I'd drink it again at the drop of a hat.
