Gorgeous nose. Some sweet wood initially with an unreal haunting Volnay ethereal quality. Yowza minerality and a gorgeous floral streak. Expansive and just so pretty. I love the mineral depth here. Wow. Sweet fruit, elegant and so complex with awesome purity and depth. Sweet and energetic and lovely lift. Beats 19. By a lot. Terrific inner mouth aromas and sweet, crunchy and velvety tannins. Awesome length and structure. Super mineral driven finish. This is tremendous. Let’s see what air does. The wood blows off so quickly! Just so complete. Stunning value here. Extra juicy. Real complexity here. The fruit on this is divine. — a month ago

La Moynerie Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Very impressive at this pricepoint. Proper Sancerre, ie mineral and linear but with nice balance of zesty just ripe tropical fruit. V warm vintages of late have destroyed linearity in some Sancerres for me but this was bang on. Strong buy. — 9 days ago

Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir Chardonnay

Spectacular. Still tightly coiled but perfect balance of oak, lemon and steely mineral. Finishes with a yeasty twist that balances the vibrant citrus and slate. Already drinking well but will improve from here. — 11 days ago
