Did not age well :( glad I opened it before it completely fell off a cliff, and still retained a shred of its former self. It's in there, at the end, that golden joy; but so much funk and cheese up front that it had turned into an entirely different wine. Still intensely enjoyable, but not how we came to love it.

‚účInternational drinkers of delectable- help please: in Paris for 5 days, aside from the obvious spots, where do we need to be eating & drinking that might've slipped my radar?

Really so special. Tropical and buttery but light on its feet and alive. A slow sipper that somehow goes fast. Somehow this feels classic and avant- garde at the same time and somehow both winter and summer in a glass. Possibly a paradox but maybe im tripping either way I love this

Over ripe peach ,dried apricot, clove, and wood with a bit of dirt and brandy on the nose, just enough fuzz on the tongue.
Like Christmas in July or a sexy revamp of your grandmas favorite perfume with Lara stone in the campaign. The confidence of being grown with the sexiness of youth under a fleece throw blanket
