Nose has yeasty bread, green mango, fresh lemon peel, clementine wedges, oxidized pear and wet, crushed limestone.
Palate has insane citrus rind, cold clementine slices, squeeze of lime, firm apricot, yellow apple peel and yeasty minerals (if that were a thing).
Crazy amount of power behind each sip, reveals so many layers and nuances as it warms in the glass, stunning.

Before i continue with the rest of the wines. I gotta tell y’all, i had one hell of a month after bottlerock and it’s not even summer yet. We celebrate birthdays, and we also had to celebrate a dear friend’s life. So with all the ups and downs I’ve witnessed i want you guys to know that these wines were enjoyed with, and in honor of some brilliant people.
Also, that special occasion that you were saving that wonderful bottle of wine might just come sooner than you think. We never know what day may come where we’re faced with our final moments, but you’ll always rest assured you drank that stunning bottle of La Tâche with the ones you love most... when you’re ready or what ever, just something to think about — 7 days ago
So much black olive it’s crazy. Hints of salami too on the nose, and hints of dark fruit and leather. Very dark purple but she’s young. So savory and spicy. Even though it’s very young it’s drinking beautifully now. Every sip begs for another. Texture is soft and pillowy, can tell from a great producer — 2 days ago

The nose is very mineral : chalk, crushed rocks, oyster shell. A bit of an herbal and lemon touch too. The palate is acid driven, with a great grip, some nice lemon all around, a bit of width, a very long finish with lemon notes and chalky touches. This is so good — 11 days ago
