Wide open, softer and sweet fruited, botrytic apricot aromatics and flavors. — a month ago
Nice energy, acidity and airiness, slightly reductive and a hint volatile. — a month ago
First bottle was soft and oxidized. Second bottle was slightly more alive — a month ago
Received this as Pascaline’s recommendation from her selection of Thibaud’s wines at Racines. What a wonderful woman and an equally vibrant wine. Citrus, energy, sheen, cut, density and length. — 13 days ago
Another stunner. Bright, reductive and dense, textural and crystalline. I wasn’t expecting this to be more open than it was and enjoyed its pure but coiled nature. We gave it a few hours in a decanter and it gave back an evolving set of beautiful, fresh, clean and complex aromatics and flavors. Don’t hurry on these mid-level 2014’s from PYCM — a month ago
