Sickness. Just an amazing wine. Nose smells like elite St. Aubin or boss Meursault. Floral, hint of butter, blast of limestone. Beeswax. So so good amazingly pure. So so aromatic. Just blasts your nostrils. Ripe but also so many cooling minerals. Complex, juicy and so ripe. So pure. Chardonnay drop. Long finish. Just pure pleasure. — a month ago
What a nose. Honeysuckle, spice cake, crazy herbal elements, mint, sage, thyme, coriander, terrific. Complex, nougat, tropical, concentrated, pure, playful, delightful. So much dancing on the palate. Amazingly purity. Round. Huge acids. Just a genius profile. So long. So so so long. — 2 months ago
This nose is absurd. High toned. High high toned! Woweee. So so mineral. Just insane. Peach juice. So decadent. Melon. Huge minerals. This nose gets so deep in your nostril your throat tickles. Floral like crazy. Some lychee. Spice. Like intense spice. This is an unforgettable nose. I smell a lot of wine and this is up there. Holy shit. The over all intensity combined with the purity and jaw dripping detail is incredible. Citrus zest emanates after some air. Palate is just luscious to the max. Sweet peaches and inner mouth florals like crazy. Rich, decadent and so hedonistic. Juicy and insanely pure. God level juicy. Structured and firm which suggests long aging. Tropical but so pure. Decadence beyond belief but bathed in beauty. Amazing finish. — 10 months ago
Huge nose, vanilla extract, caramel nougat, huge minerals, peach and citrus, very lifted, so so so mineral, palate is so complete, so complex, so juicy, energetic and vivid. What a lithe yet substantial structure. Sappy and pure. Almost tannic like a red wine. What purity and balance. Terrific mid palate texture and density. Yes it’s young but man is it good. Playful, ethereal, serious. It has it all. — 9 months ago
What a great wine. KG killed 19. Tangerine, sweet citrus, herbs, florals. Palate is juicy and dense with awesome mineral force and deep but playful citrus fruit. Long finish. Very good structure. Terrific hint of vanilla extract. Very very fresh and pure. Long, vibrant but also textured finish with a hint of creaminess. Delicious. — a month ago
Nose kicks you in the butt on open. Mineral. Fruit. Elegant smoke. Awesome. As this opens it’s a beautiful thing.
Palate is equally great. Perfect blend of tropical and. Green apple. Mineral. Delicious. Great acidity. Only lacks elite density to be truly great.
As it opens has this balanced crazy complexity. Almost puligny-ish in the fruit mineral acid interplay. This is very very good.
A fantastic wine. Especially for the price.

Fresh and light with flowers and meadow herbs and some shy peach.
On the palate very pure and with a drink ability of crystal clean spring water. And then the power of Riesling shines through with steely lemons, peaches and slate, and this white flower Charme that started in the nose. This sings already and will definitely improve. The best in the tasting perhaps? — 2 years ago
