Wild ride here. Lustrous amber heavy skin contact character. Cider, orange blossom and jasmine topnotes with cinnamon, ginger, sarsaparilla, cardamom, walnuts, and curry emerging over time. So acetic it’s a little aggro but by god the precision and unfolding aromatic complexity is impressive; it is not microbial or dirty at all; and as it opens, a roundness and richness balances the VA. Good stuff. — 8 days ago
Nose is like a blend of Condrieu and sea salt. Very intriguing. Apricot pit. Floral and mineral but I get a sense it’s holding back. Now some terroir notes are coming through. Nose is nuanced and complex but right now is showing maybe 10% of itself. Has that earthy funky dirty Burgundian thing. Palate is epic. Juicy, structured, deep and very complex. Super dry on the finish. Really lingers as well. Also showing only 10% of what it could be. Very delineated on the finish and superbly mineral. Not much fruit to speak of as of yet. Acidity is good and there is lovely balance and it definitely floats on your palate. Good concentration and depth. Needs time. Maybe 1.5 hours and I will check in again.
Ok nose is a bit better now. Huge spice. Very floral. Like an elite condrieu but much earthier and reminiscent of white burgundy. Gorgeous citrus. Really needs a bit of air here. Sugar cane. Palate is now gaining finesse and has no hard edges. Gorgeous structure and finesse. Really massive 1er cru/grand cru elite white burg structure. Long finish. Amazing how young this shows. Awesome finish. 9.4 to 9.6. — 2 days ago
