Nose has dried seashells, lemon peel, white pepper and sliced lemon.
Palate has salted lemon wedge, dehydrated green apple and wet, crushed seashells.
Medium body, mineral drive is excellent and runs through the complete finish. I would suggest this vineyard site has a majority of calcareous soils. Decanted 60m.
Paired with grilled steelhead trout, delicious. — 5 days ago
Tried 3rd time, 1st bottle a dud, 2nd great. Made by Michele d'Aprix, American woman who studied organic chemistry in college, ended up in Bordeaux. Label Chemical equation for calcareous clay soil in right bank of Bordeaux giving a unique character. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits and notes of cedar and spice. Palate shows flavors of blackberry & cherry with tobacco & pepper spice. Drying tannins, medium+ finish, nice balance ending with earthy herbs & black pepper notes. Nice, no ‘15, ‘16 next — 6 months ago
