Flavour presentation: Front delivers a tight Bing Cherry with larger impression of plum followed by lacing of rose petal & mint. It closes with leathery tannins which introducing a smooth lengthy graphite finish.

@delectable Montepepe grand vintage s1 collection.
Wow. Made by the former winemaker at gaja (15 years) federico curtaz.
Nose is so pretty. You get the classic Viognier florals but they are moderated by the vermentino. As it opens like this gorgeous rich floral mineral thing. The vermentino gives it this Italian character which is quite subtle. As it opens effing perfume. Wow. Gods blood. Effing gorgeous. Deep perfume but not unctuous. Hits every cell in the nose. Just an English garden in spring.
Palate is super fresh. Would not guess 2009. Rich but balanced. Weight is very Burgundian. Chassagne Montrachet. You get this creeping palate conquest as the flavors spread. A _perfectly_ well made wine. Minerals are almost sweet. Round stones made from Petrified green apples and a hint of tropical fruit.
An hour in just effing insane. Perfect texture. Silky yet present. Perfect balance between fruit minerality richness and acidity. Good density but more a wine of perfection. Wow.
Basically tastes like viognier grown in chassagne Montrachet. You get there minerality you want from burgundy with that gorgeous kiss of viognier that is mellowed by the vermentino. Ok. This makes no sense unless you taste it.
Long finish. Mineral. Floral. So good.
It’s almost like cool climate viognier so you get the aromatics but not the too much ness. The vermentino really balances it out. — 3 months ago
