What a courteous wine, each element and sensation making room for the next. There’s waxiness and pyrazines and honeysuckle and flowers and vanilla beans but they are all teaming up to support citrus. But the team effort shines through. Balanced, delicious, interesting, it is a courteous wine. I don’t know if it is a thrilling one but I’d ask it out again. And maybe again. As the night goes it keeps revealing more of itself to me, I don’t mind seeing more.

Not the crisp mineral white that I usually prefer. More smooth with almond notes. it's not a giant popcorn butter Chardonnay but it has some hints of Oak. Definitely chicken and pork not fish. No Chinese or Vietnamese would go very well

Ruikt fruitig, smaakt vol en heeft een zachte maar droge afdronk.

This was extremely pleasant. Honeycomb with some lemon zest. Completely neutral on the palate. Great mouthfeel.

I was told that this is a Sauterne blend in reverse. Instead of 1/3 Sémillon and 2/3rds Sauvignon Blanc, it’s the other way around. And of course the fruit didn’t sit on the vine long enough for it to rot nobly. I admit that I didn’t much care for this wine on the first taste but it continues to grow on me. Grapefruit and neroli on the nose. Hints of vanilla on the front of the palate with soft tannins, which are both drowned out mid-palate with a strong minerality and astringent high notes. Lemon zest on the end — sour and bitter, but very refreshing! It develops a nice softness after the bottle is left open for a while.Initially I gave this an 8.9 but I’m moving it up to 9.1 on my second tasting. Too bad it’s not summer anymore. This is a perfect afternoon summer time wine.
