Pop and pour and just singing out of the gate. On the nose: lovely gevrey funk, perfumed red fruit and loads of spice..so complex. On the palate: fantastic acidity, ethereal mouthfeel and weight, soft red fruit, very finely grained tannin on the lovely, slightly chalky (austere?) finish. Anyway, this was a benchmarking exercise...this has loads in the tank, and I will check back at some point...I only say that because I buried my other bottles just so they would be hard to find.... — a month ago
Medium gold with a slight tinge of greenish undertones. The bouquet truly blossoms with a burst of pretty flowers and wheat stalks. The customary citrus notes are here showcasing dried pears, lime zest, and some slightly intense lemon. This really is quite a lovely nose going on here. Flint and minerality begin to shine with time in the glass.
A fuller bodied Chablis but still light on its feet. Swaying gracefully the entire time, it comes to life in the glass. High acidity and dry with charisma. The fruit is polished and juicy. Surprising amount of depth for this price point. Herbs and apples on the palate along with more citrus and a dab of honey. Medium long finish with a bit of spice. This is really fun. — 2 months ago

Cardamom, blind, dark red cherries, sour candies and spice on the nose, which took a while to open up, but emerged to be surprisingly complex and different from what I expected. The palate is rich with surprisingly refined tannins, with red cherries, a long, lingering tart acidity, and slight notes of hibiscus on the finish. Not crunchy like the American pinot munier’s, more refined, but still light and delicious. Drank at APT 115 wine bar in East Austin! — a month ago
