Really pretty cab franc. Boysenberry fruit, chalky minerality, pencil shavings and nice acid. Yum!

Wow. As advertised, Thierry killed 2015. Stunning wine and best FDP ever from this estate. Floral, lavender, roses, berry, mineral, earth, very refined and perfumed. As it aired out it just got crazy. What a nose. Truly outstanding. The palate is just so complete. Juicy and dense yet startlingly fresh and complex. Awesome tannins and balance. Young but not impossibly so. So long on the palate. Wonderful.
