Hot on open. Fine after 15.
Nose is beautiful. Intense peach flower.
As this opens almost like old Riesling. Like old muellen. There’s some extra element I can’t put my finger on that takes it to the next level. Plus that mountain stream freshness. Wow.
Palate is really clean. Mountain stream. Peach nectar. Balanced. Very good deliciousness without being over the top.
A great wine. Very distinctive.

So floral and mineral! Love it. Nose explodes after a few hours of air with lilac, lily and purple florals, a hint of citrus rind and green apricot, mashed plums. Unique fruit right on the temperate tropical divide; pawpaw? Has a rare vitality and poise. Slightly hazey; my suspicion is there is a perfectly judicious use of skin contact. Good acid; filled with flavor. Minerals that float and prick like electricity. — a month ago
A wow nose. Olives and wild flowers. Sweet berry fruit. Wow. Lavender. Violets. Purple olives. Incredibly floral. 9.6 nose but will add more complexity and layers. So elegant and aristocratic with terrific tannic grip but they are so fresh and ripe. Wow the inner mouth aromas are something else here. Terrific concentration and depth. Chewy, ripe and lingering. What persistence. Such a classic expression of Cote Rotie. Plessy is reliable and just textbook. — 4 days ago

(Disg. 2018)- 100% Pinot Noir coming from Kimmeridgian soils in Côtes des Bars. Largillier is always a favorite of mine, and was great to see on Zuni’s wine list. I love the incredible energy and inner mouth tension to the wine. It’s incredibly expressive and its bouquet wafts from the glass showing stone fruit, toasted almonds, baking spice and smoky minerals. Its vibrant palate shows tremendous intensity, depth and layered complexity with a superbly long saline and chalky mineral infused finish. Always a treat. — 19 days ago
My second time having this ultra rare bottle, it has to be one of my absolute favorite Champagnes. Coming from 70+ year old vines (given to Guillaume on his 18th birthday from his grandmother), this singular and stunning bottling shows layers and layers of caramelized orchard fruit, roasted nuts, toffee, oak spice, and a touch of lavender, all held together by its chalky minerality. There is incredible depth on the palate, with a seamless marriage of richness and elegance. Wow, I wish I had more of this in my life 😅 — 21 days ago
