Have not had in a while any serious 2018. Time to check in. Nose is gorgeous mid season cherries, elegant florals, subtle minerality. It’s holding back as 2018 just has so much material. But what is there is terrific. Palate is fantastic. Gorgeous, elegant and sappy fruit. Excellent sweetness and purity. Dark red cherry and mid season cherries and brilliant elegant tannins. Fantastic. Still delicate as this site tends to be but has the power of 18 as well. Huge concentration and sap. Dense yet delicate. So young but so fantastic. Awesome fruit soak and inner mouth aromas. Love the character of 18 and once it matures I think it’s going to be epic.

Delectable ate my note but in a new weird way. Anyway, this is gorgeous. Cherry flower, sour cherries, so floral, so pretty. Such a Volnay nose. Classic nose. Palate is just stunning. Wow. Incredibly concentrated and so pure with a black cherry, late season red cherry fruit soak that is unreal. Clean, mineral and so so juicy. Balanced and so elegant with ripe and elegant tannins. Super high quality tannins and great freshness. Long, lingering black cherry on the finish. Hit of opulence just stays in your mouth. Just terrific fruit. It’s dense and elegant with just crazy energy and delineation. This is wow wine.
