Gorgeous mountain stream water, fresh wild flowers, hay. Delicate yet very elegant palate with lovely opulence and purity. So clean. So damn clean. Mineral finish with honey and tangerine. Complex and so dense but my goodness is it elegant. Beautiful lingering honey on the finish with mineral and perfectly mineral citrus. Wow. Gorgeous. — 19 days ago

Just read about this stuff in noble rot. Berlioz himself says: has the density you’d find in a Meursault with long aging.
