So good! Lightly oxidized, almond nuttiness, bees wax ...the Somm kindly inquired if I understood what I ordered. Hehe I got a kick out that. (Shame to think people must be returning these once they don't get their "buttery/malo" fix).

Hay, straw, suede, green apple, mothballs. Super-fascinating with great acid.

First venture into Jura Chard. Loved. Nutty at first sip then opens into some sweet flavors. Very interesting wine. Have purchased 3 times since

Honey, Fuji apple, limoncello, citrus, and lemon tart on the nose. Dried apricot showing up with weight. Just the right amount of oxidation. Very tasty.
