Waited impatiently 4 weeks post arrival to open this...like my last 18 OR PN (the Thomas), this is another excellent btl.
Wow. Decanted...notes from 2 hrs in a wide-bottom decanter. On the nose: mulberry leaf, plum, soft vanilla, building with air, soft herbal notes, wild strawberry...just keeps developing. On the palate: fantastic acidity. a soft ferric note, then pomegranate, and a fantastic density without weight that morphs into a very intense, but finely grained and, nevertheless soft. tannic finish...the velvet glove. This is excellent now, but will undoubtedly improve with time in btl. I want to give comparisons, but I look back on wines like the 12 Scott Paul Audrey. I would like to give a burgundy comparison, but that seems silly for a wine like this: **Fantastic** OR PN. — a month ago

Vintage 2012 / orange gold colour, like the light in a Rembrandt painting. A smell of passionfruit, ananas, light vanilla. Assemblage of Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Muscat. 24 months on old foudres, bio naturelle wine without sulfite. A taste with butterscotch, a bit a fat wine in the positive meaning: a la, a painting of a beautiful woman like Rubens painted them. Yes, I am happy 🙃, although without covid19 this would be a day I would have been in Alsace for a studytrip 😢 / Paired with a Asian dish with shrimps and squid in oystersauce. — 9 months ago
I thought this was super good...deep yellow, ripe/tart fruit, yellow apples, pears, vanilla, brioche, hint of malalactic...the rocky/stony character was amazing and acid was medium plus... could have told me it was Burgundy(maconnais) , RRV , lovely Chardonnay... — 3 months ago
Vino non filtrato, e non solfitato. Non c’è certificazione bio-dinamica perché forse ancora non esisteva. Colore quasi ramato. Odore e gusto di mela gialla cotta, petrolio. In bocca leggermente frizzantino, ma solo leggermente. Ottimo vino! Grand Cru! — 5 months ago

Nose is gorgeous Bordeaux. A hint of spice. Sexy almost slutty roses. Liquid sex. Halfway between Audrey and Marilyn. A gorgeous floating fresh rose.
Palate is perfect Napa cab if it were. Raspberry. Some Tobacco. Perfect. Gods spice. So good. So not what we normally sell. Napa cab by a genius. Gorgeous sweet fruit. Gods raspberry liquor^3. Sweet raspberries. Savory. Salty.
Finish is beautiful fruit just past the knife edge of ripeness so you Taste what the fruit is and not the heaviness or Sweetness — 6 months ago
