Nose has pear peel, lemon curd with a hint of vanilla, fresh brioche with drizzled honey and dry sandstone.

Palate has yellow apple flesh, chalky-saline mousse, lemon peel and lightly oxidized green apple peel on the medium-long finish.

Doing about the same or slightly better than prior disgorgements. Best to chill this bottle and let it warm up to really open the nose.

Consistent notes from last weekend's bottle, which we thought after the fact was acting a little off the norm, bottle variation maybe. No, the bottle this evening is mostly consistent, and slightly more expressive.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this final afternoon with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our guest conductor Giancarlo Guerrero (Nashville Symphony director) is leading SCHOENBERG (Friede auf Erde, Opus 13 (Peace on Earth), for unaccompanied chorus) and BEETHOVEN (Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Opus 125).

The 9th by Beethoven is always bittersweet for us, as it marks the end of the official Symphony and Pops season for the BSO at their Summer home. It is a wonderful and singularly emotive moving piece, with the full force of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus at 250+ singers, conveying the message of a divine spark of joy that makes all people one.
'Freude, schöner Götterfunken!' / 'Joy, beauteous, godly spark!'

Nose of warmed pear, light toasted brioche and wet limestone.

Palate has warmed lemon curd spread on lightly toasted bread, chalky-saline mousse and honey over yellow apple. Finish is med-long, a beautiful effort.

Disgorged 7/2017, blend of '13/'14 with a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir. Noted improvement with some additional bottle age since our prior experience (same disgorgement).

One of my go-to growers. Lithe and pithy, with a stone fruit, lemon blossom brightness and a cool, almond dust breadth. The perfect way to start off the day at the new K Laz tasting room at Copia!
