A surprise! From the 2010 vintage, this had the weight of white burg and density. Acidity of Trebbiano. I was shocked at how good this was.

Firm reduction which doesn’t blow off in a decanter, plenty of saline, briny, cool minerality, savory fruits, citrus and olives. Lots of texture and weight but also very light. Another wonderful expression of what “natural” wine is capable of being.

Wooly, waxen, funky in the best ways, slight peeking of volatility which isn’t off-putting in the least, the savory and mineral aromatics and flavors are sitting in a nice place. Feels ready to drink and not mature at all.

The slightest bit of reduction that quickly blew off to reveal a beautiful nose of florals, peach and honey. On the palate it makes its presence known but tiptoeing not stomping. Wonderful concentration that reveals layers of fruit and herbs. At this stage I would call it a precocious child.

Blinded on this beauty. And blinded by its beauty. I am shocked how amazing this wine showed tonight. I've had it a couple times before and never seen it for this... I'd put it up next to the best Pouilly Fuisse I've had.
