Honeysuckle. Full. Viscose. Terrific.

Not as developed and maderized as I would’ve thought but nice nutty aromas with orchard fruit and sunflower.

From 85-100 year old vines, the Vielles Vignes shows remarkable structure and character. A bright, stony vibrancy coupled with a broad, flowing lemon oil acidity. Citrus peel, peach pit, mango skin, perfume oils, acacia and orange blossom. Utterly delicious and constantly changing in the glass.

Coming to the end of its fruit phase. Probably will go dumb for 3-8 years. Will be quite stunning when it re-emerges.

Decanted 2hrs+ yet still a bit tight. Screaming acidity for Roussanne, viscous and weighty

Woah. This may be the greatest white wine I've ever had. Seriously. It out-shined the night's reds - Lafite, Haut Brion, and Palmer. It's rich with fruit (apple, honeysuckle) with great minerality. A super long finish. I'll be seeking out more of these 2011s, and I highly recommend that you do too!
