On open very good. A touch of oak. For me better in 6 months.
Nose is nicely rich. Not too much. Saline.
Palate is nicely saline. Very balanced. Quite good. 30 minutes In approaching elite deliciousness. Very round on the palate. Very good elegant intensity. A hint of tropicality.

Nose: lilacs. Granite. Licorice as it opens.
Palate: sweet fruit. Delicious. Sleek and elegant texture. Some light licorice. Dusty graphite. As it opens the licorice is more pronounced.
Hour decant is optimal.

Nose kicks you in the butt on open. Mineral. Fruit. Elegant smoke. Awesome. As this opens it’s a beautiful thing.
Palate is equally great. Perfect blend of tropical and. Green apple. Mineral. Delicious. Great acidity. Only lacks elite density to be truly great.
As it opens has this balanced crazy complexity. Almost puligny-ish in the fruit mineral acid interplay. This is very very good.
A fantastic wine. Especially for the price.

Nose is psychotic on pop and pour. Structured cherry fruit. Intense.
Palate is cherry, cherry cough syrup. Dense. Very bright. Almost alive on the palate. Very complex. Tastes expensive. Wow.
A stunning basic Barolo. Even on pop and pour.

First sip is crazy. Totally unique.
Palate is intense. Fresh. Almost painfully fresh and tart in a good way. Think a great vintage of willi Schaefer how it gets that intense Green apple jolly rancher thing. Except this is Chardonnay and tressalier. Yes. I know this note is a bit imprecise but it’s not like I have a lot of experience with tressalier.
Has this stunning controlled density. Blind I might guess aged very good Grand cru Chablis. Shows what I know.
Man. This is very good.
Nose is lightly floral. Sorta closed but the little you get is gorgeous. If the nose comes around this is world class wine.
As this opens you get almost this elegant marsanniness. Almost mountain Marsanne. Rich and lightly floral.
An hour in this is insane. The density, complexity and elegance of grand cru burgundy. Spectacular.
Makes me wonder how many other random areas can make elite wines.

Nose is very welcoming. Hints of tobacco. Roasted plum. Plum skin.
Palate is sweet plum. Cherry. Delicious. Really sweet fruit. Chocolate. Good acidic balance
Very sexy texture. Really caresses the palate. Clings in a gentle but persistent way. Almost sensual.

On open nose is a bit muted. Sweet dark pink roses.
Palate is almost watery. Liquefied rose petal texture. Not much here. Some rose extract. Hints of gorgeousness after an hour. Maybe like the echo of blackberry.
Odd. Let’s see how this develops.
My wife thinks this is very mildly corked which is killing the nose.
Very old school elegant.
This really needs a 90 minute decant at this point. — 12 days ago
