Melon, ripe pear, wool, and a honey note on the finish. Gorgeous balance

This bottle is firing on all cilinders! Amazingly fresh, young and focussed it resembles a wonderful bottle I had in a tasting a few years ago. Had 2 suboptimal bottles since then, but this one is spectacular!! Drinks like a 10 yo Pessac. Wow.

This could use a decade in the cellar. I still loved it with the petrale sole that Cinnamon made. It had a great balance of semmilon honey and sauvignon sweat. Great acid, very long finish!

Beautiful development, great integration from the richness of the harvest to the oak contact, slight cumquat marmalade, burnt orange peel & spent coffee grinds, everything you want in developed Bordeaux Blanc.

Onr of the best still white wines I have had this year. This is just hitting its stride at 15 years old with great sweaty, honeyed aromatics, a full bodied, waxy texture and acid on the level of BdB Champagne.

2007- in better shape than the last bottle, in mid-life with slightly resinous oak on the nose, integration is lovely with waxy chewiness and lovely lift from the acidity. Glad I have some bottles left as this will get more complex over next few years. Drink close to room temp.
