Pretty much at a perfect point; intensely fragrant of honeysuckle and lime blossom, elegant, supple and satiny, flinty tart apple fruit with exotic Thai lime and kumquat notes, super long shimmery finish. One of those bottles you wish had no end.

A beautiful limpid nose of oyster shells, soft lime, white flowers, limestone. Very pure and focussed on the palate. Soft edges and delicate citrus, but there’s heft underneath this. Very transparent and balanced. Fantastic stuff.

This has real presence. Lemon oil, honeysuckle, a whiff of honey on the nose. A bigger midpalate than the 08. With time in the glass limestone and rock pools come through- a great tension between minerality and fruit. This is fleshy, pure and exotic next to the 08 bug is all in great balance. Drinking well now. Gorgeous.

Incredibly elegant with great fresh fruit. A wonderful glass of wine is an understatement

Beautiful bottle that opened over an hour. Probably should have decanted it. Bright,lithe, citrus, mineral, slate with a structured slightly tannin finish. Opened to show beeswax,lanolin,lemon curd
