Puligny like structure. Taut citrus fruit with background flinty smoke. Extremely enjoyable now but guessing with time will put on more weight and will really be amazing

The fruit is very much the supporting cast on both the nose and palate. Beautifully nutty, savory, mineral-driven. Some lees and a little oak character adds further to the complexity. The fruit tends towards citrus and apple. Beautiful medium weight mouthfeel. Really fresh still for a 2016.

Very nice, possible higher rating with age, allowing oak to soften and integrate more. Drinking deliciously now, and can totally age.
