Killer pairing with creamy mushroom pasta too drunk to remember more but very much enjoyed this bottle. Maybe a bit past prime.

Needs time. Good wine but fairly shutdown. Round texture with Chamomile and yellow apple/pear.

A one of a kind wine. Smoked hay, almond skin, chamomile. Beautiful and singular.

Grilled pineapple, apricot, yellow pear, tangy citrus peel, honey, nougat, pine resin, jasmine, limestone, sea spray, petrol. A textural landscape ranging from rich and round to sharp and piercing. Phenolic and tanninc strength coupled with some serious minerality too.

Unluckily 2 bts of 2004 corked in a raw... I love this wine, but obviously it was not a good experience

Finessed and a bit smokey with exotic aromas; notes of lime blossoms, almonds, orange peel

Completely puzzled blind. Lovely breadth contrasts with snappy acidity. Botrytis noes of apricots and honey. Sweet impression. Exotic for me.

Fragrant like only Simone can be. Yellow fruits, gras, sense of richness. Super mineral and hay like aromas. Balanced, textured, rich and so long. Super texture. Texture and length stars of the day
