Wow. What a nose. Pastry cake, phyllo dough, mountain air. Grass. Flowers. Hit of high end honey. Smells like a sprite farted. Palate is crispy and clean, rich and vibrant but also showing slight hint of heat right now. Very pure and clean. Heat goes away after 5 mins or so. So tropical and juicy. Energetic and vibrant with nice acid. Very complex. Loads of fruit for such a mineral driven wine. Now heat is back on finish and does prickle. That’s 17. — 17 days ago
Sick. Floral, sick floral. Blueberry, gamey, violets galore. Mint, lavender, black raspberry, palate is engaging and deep but mostly closed. Sweet red fruits. So complex. Be back later.
After 7 hours this is crazy. 9.5 to 9.7. Sickness. So clean. So pure. Massive violets. So finessed. Pure deep aroma. — a month ago
Pale lemon-hued. Aromas and flavors of almond, cream, flint, grapefruit, honeysuckle, and lemon zest. Medium body and medium-plus acidity. Soft bouquet of floral and citrus notes; a textured mouthfeel; and a crisp finish of grapefruit and minerals. A lovely and balanced Sauvignon Blanc. — 2 months ago
Nose is crazy pencil shavings. Floral. Very perfumed.
Palate is very elegant. Elegant grapey fruit. Graphite. Some licorice.
Honestly I need to grab more Côte rotie. The right ones are super Burgundian and much less scratch.

Nose of intense alpine minerality. White flowers. Custard. Hint of medicinal quality. More like an apothecary. Not bad medicinal if that is not clear. Clean and way batter than my last bottle’s aromas. Palate is juicy and clean, long and tense. Really long. Terrific elegance and purity. Nice spice. Balanced and very pure. Exotic tropical fruits. @Delectable Wine this is roussanne not Jacquere. — 2 months ago

A 9.4 with potential to upgrade with more age! The 2010 at 10 years is still a young developing wine. The fruit is still plentiful with cherry, raspberry, red plum, the tertiary elements are barely starting to integrate and show. The oak was also pretty muted but there. Personally I think this vintage is a little shutdown at the moment but give it 5+ more years and I think it will start showing like the 2005! This wine has a lot of power and potential. I tasted this in a vertical with the 2005 and 2007 all bottles came direct from the Barge Cellars. — 2 months ago
