So good- layered textures of non fruit and fruit with an open yet firm close. Long finish and sitting pretty right now. Buy.

Reductive, slightly closed nose, but wonderfully fresh, vibrant, and broad on the palette. Incredible wine for a stunning price.

Nuts, bread crust and orange peel on the nose. Still lively acidity, good structure. A well aged white burgundy.

2010. Subtle nougat and marzipan with tree fruits. Lively, young. Fresh palate long refreshing lime juice. Sooo delicate
