2019 - subtle nose, which seems to be the case for this year’s whites; hints of rosemary and tarragon, quite an herbaceous nose. Saline in the mouth with honeycomb and plenty of minerality!

Quite open and ready, some nice breadth and yellow fruit balancing all that salinity

You’ll hear wine geeks throw around the word “nervosity” from time to time, and this is a perfect example of a wine that displays that thrumming electrical current of acidity and sappy piney lemony zip that earns the adjective. Gorgeous wet pavement welded to neon lemon pith and pink grapefruit all dusted with fleur de sel. Utterly mouthwatering and delicious. This is the remains of a sample bottle that I’ve been nursing for a few days since tasting it and it continues to be fantastically fresh and demonstrative of a long life ahead of it - provided you have the willpower to wait that long.

Classic TG. Despite it’s nerve and pristine character, there is a pleasant and detailed roundness beneath the brisk acid. This coupled w/ TG’s saline backbone always give this a Chablis sensibility. Going to let this hang out for a day to unwind. Day 2: more giving today, still a lightening bolt down the palate. Fresh yuzu, ripe lemon, sea spray, some lovely floral notes and crushed mint lingering in the background.

Monster acidity, wet stones with lemon, tangerine and green apple. Needs food but I think that kinda goes without saying. Definitely room for improvement with time

Had the ‘15 last night which drank surprisingly well. And now the ‘14 presents even younger - vintages matter!
