Magnificent. Pristine bottle, richness and depth yet weightlessly elegant. Did not taste a day over 4-5 years old, possibly younger, absolutely incredible. Yellow tree fruits, gooseberry, lees, wet stones, river water, fines herbs, blossoms, struck rocks, cool verbena, earth. Top form and demonstrated its class with absolute truth.

Absolutely beautiful bottle! Fresh from the start could have been 3-4 years old. True to form and has to be one of the best bottles I’ve had from the Loire.

For SB, it's Dagueneau and Vatan at the top of my list. This is just to damn pricey. L'chaim!
