Tasted blind. Medium gold. Persistent small bubbles. Notes of apricot, peach and some yeast in the nose. Great texture in the mouth. This improved over an hour as it got more air. Very nice.

On the nose; yellow lilies, lemon custard, lime, green apple, pineapple, sea spray, cream soda, touch of ginger ale, bread, yeast, brioche, soft minerals, cream & jasmine.

On the palate; green apple, pineapple, lemon custard, lime, cream soda, ginger ale, gritty volcanic minerals that really penetrate the palate, sea shells, cream, bruised golden apples, brioche, yeast, yellow lilies, jasmine, beautiful acidity and a long, rich, well polished finish.

Unmistakable Dom toastiness and autolysis nuances but perhaps lacking the finesse, power and precision of greater vintages. Always good to drink though. 👍🏼🍾🥂

A gorgeous Dom that has balance and intensity in equal measure. It's going to be a keeper. Great structure and complexity that will only get better over time.

On the nose; macerated lemon & golden apple, just a whiff of apple cider, overripe pineapple, lemon custard, the citrus flesh in marmalade, lime pith with some flesh, sea spray, chalkiness, yeast, yellow lilies, citrus blooms and white spring flowers.

The body is full & rich. Acidity is sharpe & crisp. Macerated lemon & golden apple, just a whiff of apple cider, a little bit of sour green apple, overripe pineapple, lemon custard, the citrus flesh in marmalade, lime pith with some flesh, sea shells, chalkiness, round grey volcanic minerals, yeasty, doughy, bread, yellow lilies, citrus blooms and white spring flowers. The long finish is rich and is excellently executed.
