Just adored this. Gorgeous nose of citrus and Brie rind. Quite the elegant palate of salty, fresh melon and a long mineral finish. Some people wanted more funk, I’m all for the squeaky, delicious, cleanliness of this. — a day ago
Lean, clean, bright. Bit hollow in the mid palate. Mainly Pinot Auxerrois with Pinot Blanc. — 4 days ago
Singing in the glass with gorgeous aromatics that don’t let on to it’s age. The palate displays more maturity with sun baked cherries, forest leaves, and sandalwood. Grainy tannin with a long, fresh finish of cranberry and faint vanilla.
I don’t picture this getting any better, but there’s certainly no rush with the ‘05. — 5 days ago
Really charming after the initial SO2 blows off.
Light, soft, crushable. — a day ago
Rather insipid and uninteresting. 90% Chard 10% Riesling. Soft pear and orchard fruit. Not aptly named as it could’ve used more acid. — 2 days ago
Just a hint of blush here. 55% Chard 45% Pinot. Easy going, not complex but tasty. — 4 days ago
Well, just punch me in the face. This wine is painful to drink without food, even with ample air time. Unapologetically hedonistic. Better on day two. Walloping and almost Scotch like on the palate with brandied cherries, spice cake and dried (bordering on sweet) fruits. Is it Amarone or a Manhattan?
Obviously complex and well made, I just don’t know what I’d pair this with and it’s quite intense on its own. — 17 days ago
Much softer and lighter than the ‘15 but with excellent, subdued energy. Bright, round red fruits with excellent length and minerality. Delicious and all too easy to drink. — 2 days ago
Nice fruitiness and bit of residual sugar here at 9% Alc. Juicy with ripe citrus and stone fruit.
Just lacking some of the acidic tension and verve I crave. But for $12?!? What’s not to love about the undervaluation of German Riesling? — 3 days ago
Beautiful, biodynamic bubbles. Gruner, Zweigelt, and Pinot Noir. Medium bodied with extremely approachable acidity. Hint of brioche on the palate but this really leads with green apple, citrus, and some stony mineral tones.
Went great with risotto cakes on a pea purée. — 12 days ago
