Smells like 16 or 17. Gilles does not believe in putting vintages on labels. Or corks. I’ll say 17. Hay, pickled lemons, mineral, wild flowers, ripe something, maybe a minor tropical fruit. Really fine pointed minerality. This is 17. Acid is very very low. It’s rich, but man that low acid does not work. Good texture and length. Barely a 9.0. Gained weight, some freshness and complexity. 9.0 to 9.1 to 9.2. — 6 days ago
Showing really well, perfect lunchtime wine. Super aromatic, pungent, heady, very floral. White flower with a honeyed edge and a kiss of volatility. Flowers, quince, white raspberry and slate on the palate with a bruised apple finish. Lingers with a cidery impression. Love the balance of palate richness and nervy acids. Complex and delicious. Love! — 4 days ago

Nose has that old burgundy water on hot brick aromatic. Deep really dense violets. Complex. Wow. Stunningly aromatic.
Palate is sweet succulent fruit. Sweet cherries. Incredible. So juicy. A hint of cherry licorice. A hint of balsamic but not unpleasant. Lovely old classy richness. Tastes old and expensive.

A bit of cat pee in the nose from the Sauvignon Blanc. Tropical fruit, citrus, lemongrass, and hay. Medium acid. — 6 days ago
Needs 60 minutes to calm down. Do not drink before then.
Nose is tropical. Lovely.
Palate -elegant tropical fruit. Sort of this creamy tropical elegance.
Long elegant tropical finish.
As this opens it becomes much more elegant. Almost a tropical perfume.
An hour in this gets crazy. Tropical flower perfume. Insane. Oh my god. Like a walk in a rainforest filled with tropical fruits during a rainstorm with the rain aerating the first with tropical fruit and flower perfume. Elite aromatics. Jesus Christ good. Palate is elegant. Almost golden. With a bit more grip and density this would be even higher scoring. Internal aromatics are a thing of beauty. Papaya guava. Wow. Wow. Wow.
