Wow nose. So funky. Smoke, spice, huge mineral. Lemon, so complex. Pitter patter of complexity. Juicy and so elegant. Very pure and even a bit young. Awesome texture and has that 08 lifting acid. Finishes so so beautiful and with intense long minerality. Terrific.

Nose is mineral and iodine.

Palate is similar. Dense mouthfeel but not dense fruit. Fruit is silky.

A slight hint of green.

Hall of very good. But not Ina negative way. I’m loving this with no carb vegetable “lasagna”. Oy that makes me sound like a Californian.

Oops. At 90 minutes that insane rich caramel density shows up. Grand cru insanity all the way. Whatever. As in life with wine timing is everything.
