Spirit Guide at Elie Wine Co.
Botrytized vermentino with big aromas of musk melon, bourbon-soaked apricots, a flower shop, and salty ocean breeze. A sip is syrupy without being cloying as a pineapple rum cake finish stretches on for miles and cries out for something fat and salty. — 8 days ago
Little sign of the hallmark carbonic maceration smells of strawberries and cinnamon. In their place are more elegant Burgundian aromatics of cherry licorice, flower gardens mulched with fresh forest compost, and just a wee curl of sandalwood smoke. A sip is structured and dense with sappy wild bramble fruit. If any comparison to Cru Beaujolais is to be made, it has to be to the age-worthy specimens from Morgon and Moulin-à-vent. — 4 days ago
