Wow, just wow.
Part of the blend comes from vines planted in 1923, another part from vines planted in the 50s—specially from a parcel comprised of all 7 varieties (supposedly more). Exquisitely light and balanced but with dozens of really interesting flavors — mandarin orange, pipe tobacco, sandalwood, flint, golden and red apple, marzipan, vanilla along with the usual melange of berries and chalk. It’s all about the poise, finesse and structure on this one though—like a gymnast nailing a dismount. Also, not bad with jalapeño poppers (or “muncher peppers” as they’re called on the Glue Pot’s English menu). — 7 months ago
Muted on the nose. Rich & unctuous on the palate though. Stony minerality, ripe/overripe yellow apple, dried yellow/white apricot, meat/jerky. Med+/elevated fruit wrapped acidity. — 3 months ago
Brut Nature. Disgorged 4/2020. Unbelievable nose. Rush with flowers, seashell, bread with salt and grassy oil. Palate is great with lemons, more bread, some almonds, more sea salt. Long lingering finish with cooked pears, citrus and just wonderful. Brings you back for me! This is complex and great yeast with balanced acidity. — 5 months ago
