In a great drinking stage. Citrus, hazelnut, brioche. Mineral, citrus oil and stone on the finish. Has some years of life ahead but great now. Medium body with some phenolics on the finish

Nose is showing a bit of wood out of the gates but under that is a gorgeous core of limestone, lime lest, airy minerals, some richness and you can tell there is more to come. Very refined. Palate is rich and powerful with great freshness and fruit intensity. It grips your palate. Classic Genevrieres opulence married with tension. Amazing density and texture with just explosive juiciness and acidity. Terrific length. Mineral tinged fruit soaked finish. This is terrific.

Really interesting--will want to try another before assessing, but this was aromatic out of the gate with a nose almost like candied peaches...then there was plenty of nicely etched white Burgundy features--cream, minerals, some oaky richness, but plenty of acid. There's a neat combination of richness and tension here. Curious to try the next one.

So good. Accessible as Genevrieres can be early. Nose of limestone and minerals galore. Very complex. Nice hint of oak spice. Palate is elegant and mineral as all can be, with terrific sap and complexity. Dense and deep with a limestone palate cleansing finish. So long and juicy. Very elegant. Excellent. Took 35 minutes to open.

Absolutely brilliant bottle, this is day 2 after being out in the market in San Francisco yesterday & flying down to San Diego! Gorgeous nose, minerals, honey, white flowers, flavors of apricots, peaches, sweet spices, finishes with sweet citrus. This is power, grace, balance, vibrant, pure, fresh, with promise for a long happy life...

Wood has integrated. An absolute monster. Mammoth fruit minerality and acidity. Juicy as heck. Internal aromatics just go on and on.
