First sip is crazy. Totally unique.
Palate is intense. Fresh. Almost painfully fresh and tart in a good way. Think a great vintage of willi Schaefer how it gets that intense Green apple jolly rancher thing. Except this is Chardonnay and tressalier. Yes. I know this note is a bit imprecise but it’s not like I have a lot of experience with tressalier.
Has this stunning controlled density. Blind I might guess aged very good Grand cru Chablis. Shows what I know.
Man. This is very good.
Nose is lightly floral. Sorta closed but the little you get is gorgeous. If the nose comes around this is world class wine.
As this opens you get almost this elegant marsanniness. Almost mountain Marsanne. Rich and lightly floral.
An hour in this is insane. The density, complexity and elegance of grand cru burgundy. Spectacular.
Makes me wonder how many other random areas can make elite wines.

Clean, light/medium bodied apple fresh ‘orchardy’ Chardonnay blend. Yapp suggests pairs well w chicken and oregano or st nectarine. It’s a lovely drop. — 12 days ago
Interesting contrast with the 2016. This is a little rounder to my taste. The 2016 was more chiseled. — 15 days ago
