Black cherries, underripe strawberries, raspberry meringue, hazelnuts, biscotti, pistachios, toast, turmeric, mint, clove. Racy fresh acidity, juicy-satin texture, light bodied, smooth velvet tannins, long fruity-savory- smoky finish. Secondary notes shine, perfectly balanced, highly evolves in glass. A master at his craft. — a month ago
I got this bottle at the Domaine last year. A chat with a super focused Nicolas Ragot in the middle of a super clean chai left me a great impression. The wine is showing precision and balance. The fruit comes out after a chew and gives a superb tone to after taste. Tasted on 2 days; drink or cellar #bestofgivry #1ercru — 11 days ago

Smells like a shop that only sells dried fragrant fruit on tiny hemp strings. The shop is playing “Gorecki, Symph #3”
The first flavor/band to hit my palette is “XTC: skylarking” a harmonious blend of red and blue fruits, subtle, yet always a new one after every sip.
This wraps up with a truly silky, smooth style, with a long, lingering flash of vanilla. “Prince: Purple rain” is what’s happening in my head at the moment..
Stunning Cab Franc blend..

Another great last minute gathering at the storage facility!
I love these older Alsatian wines! The intensity of the sweetness from this has been dialed back on the palate, even though the sweetness is still there aromatically. Beeswax, orange marmalade, lemon. At 20-yrs old, excellent body and acidity! I have a young one of these which means it needs to sleep for at least 12-15yrs. — 13 days ago
