Haven’t had in over 2 years. Showing so well. Crazy spice. Also some nougatine. Caramel. Some light barely ripe citrus. Floral as well. Wonderful. Palate is ripe, juicy and delicious but had a lovely mineral spine. Acid is good but not great but the freshness comes from the minerality. Finishes very dry and has wonderful energy. — 8 days ago

Super complex nose. Layered and confectionery. Matchstick. Intense minerality. Powerful and elegant. The minerality. Jagged, rocky minerality. Concentrated. Attack is powerful and the finish is so refined. Wonderful purity. Long and detailed. Chewy and concentrated. Very dry. Such finesse. Trucker in a tutu. Wow. Super pure. What a finish. This is genius. This has the finesse and elegance of the top wines of Germany. — a month ago

Nose has the classic porphyry aromas and are just wonderful. It’s so expressive. Such mineral precision. Insane clarity of wet stone aromas. Nose is a bit quiet as well as it’s too cold. Palate is hauntingly elegant with unreal rockiness and sappy minerality. Not much fruit right now but the underlying architecture is perfect. Stunning purity. This is a rock star. Literally. What intense minerality on the finish but so so elegant. Just stunning. Some apricot now on the nose. Crystalline purity and just so well made and everything in its place. A stunner. — 20 days ago

Super fine and mineral nose. Confectionery. Crushed rocks. This is dancing on the palate. Textured and rich but it’s also so fine. Juicy and concentrated and so sappy and so pure. Dense yet dancing. The most cerebral wine of the trip. — a month ago
