Didn’t capture my attention the way most de Villaine wines do. — a month ago
N: Bing Cherries, tar, mulberries, damson plum, gravel road.
P: Cherries, tar, bright acidity, gentle tannic grip, esp. in the cheeks. Mid-light weight in the mouth. I know with air/time, this broadens. As it airs, a mossy, leathery, quality comes forward esp. on the nose.

First Bdx blend in a while - went over well. Red fruits on nose. Boysenberry, stewed plum. Young tannins. Had with A5 wagyu and assortment of banchan for Fathers Day. — 4 days ago
I love this wine. One of the most unique and distinctive Rieslings ever. Massively floral and mineral complexity on the nose. Just outrageous. Melon, citrus, spice, tangelo and so lifted. So pure. Nuanced. Superbly elegant and linear with delicious melon/citrus fruit and great inner mouth florals and an awesome fruit skin quality on the finish. So ethereal and pure. Lots of vim and vigor but also a lovely richness to the texture but never betraying its freshness and vivacity. Superb concentration and structure. Amazing depth here. Truly a brilliant wine. I’m sure this will open up and reveal more but really great on the P and P. Great, delicate and long finish. — 12 days ago
Great P. Meunier, good acidity that suggests we should wait a while to drink it again — 22 days ago
