Sugar levels are cranked up too much this vintage. Needs more acid and air. — 3 months ago
Great balance. The residual sugar perfectly harmonizes the 7.5% abc and acid. Stone fruit — 2 days ago
This leaps out of the glass with abundant aromas of ripe pears, orange marmalade, wet stone, sea breeze
The palate is electric, with intense flavours of juicy granny Smith apple, peach, apricot, passion fruit, raspberry and fennel. very high acidity. Supremely complex and elegant.
Very long finish - like, the longest I’ve experienced in a Riesling to date. My mouth continues to water 30 seconds after the sip. — a month ago

First sip is crazy. Totally unique.
Palate is intense. Fresh. Almost painfully fresh and tart in a good way. Think a great vintage of willi Schaefer how it gets that intense Green apple jolly rancher thing. Except this is Chardonnay and tressalier. Yes. I know this note is a bit imprecise but it’s not like I have a lot of experience with tressalier.
Has this stunning controlled density. Blind I might guess aged very good Grand cru Chablis. Shows what I know.
Man. This is very good.
Nose is lightly floral. Sorta closed but the little you get is gorgeous. If the nose comes around this is world class wine.
As this opens you get almost this elegant marsanniness. Almost mountain Marsanne. Rich and lightly floral.
An hour in this is insane. The density, complexity and elegance of grand cru burgundy. Spectacular.
Makes me wonder how many other random areas can make elite wines.
