  • Rounded this time around.

  • Lots of acid still that i suspect will mellow with a bit more time. White flower and honey on the palate.

  • Cream and lactic on the nose but charming in its way. A touch of lemon freshness in there as well. Smells great this time around. Darn!

  • Popped and poured on Saturday afternoon.

    Wine is a clear lemony yellow, bright, not terribly concentrated.

    Aromatic nose which is cut melon predominant, lemon, touch of a spice background.

    On palate, wine is sound. On initial tasting the wine is still a little warm. Rounded mouthfeel - I had said "malolactic" earlier and I think that's right. Spice notes come out on palate, but rounded melon background still predominates. Some of that smoky oak that I associate with Burgundy is also present.

    Very nice wine, though I don't think it's as complex as some of the other tasters did. But very well balanced and beautifully made. Better than a daily sipper, not quite at the level of a special wine.

  • Winebar [4 Whites, 8 Reds, & 6 *shared* bottles] from 12/13/19 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Arturo, THANK you for providing the opportunity for me to taste this label of which I was aware, but had never previously sampled! :)

    “Produced from 100% Dijon clones, 1st planted in 1990, & harvested 8/30 – 9/28/16; Hand-picked into small totes, & then whole-cluster pressed, it was partly fermented in FR oak barrels, the rest fermented & aged in s/s. After blending the 2 portions, it was as if one brought together elements of a pure Chablis & an elegant Meursault. 3,300 cases produced & bottled Sep ’17.”

    N: Closed; Toast, POSS butter with notes of a frt I can't quite I.D.

    P: Med body; Very RNDISH entry with NICE, ALMOST swtish oak/frt met by a fairly crisp acidity which serves as the face of the wine into & through the LONG, balanced, tangy/swt finish with POSS an *occasional* HINT of a very, VERY slight bitterness which may very well NEVER be a problem. Nicely done for now & through '21, I'm thinking. 14.1% ABV; My EXC-, & an argument for > based upon QPR would not be out of line. ;) 94 pts Suckling, 93 John Gilman, 91 WA (Brooks, 8/31/18), and 90 ea WS (Fish, 11/15/18) & WE (8/1/18) @ $35! [As of mid Dec '19, wine-searcher shows numerous sources from $28-$40].
