Limpid lime green with straw color. A cool precise nose, saltiness, flint, lemon, floral notes. Very lucid and quite intense but light and defined. Very good

This has less air. Very tense and dense. Almost syrupy in its tight, tart fruit. Really delicious and packed. Alongside the 10, a significantly tighter and younger wine but that may be the lack of air. Lemon, lime, sizzling acidity and great tension. Amazing stuff with a long life ahead.

Raveneau study! Nose was floral and saline, with intense lemon and pear notes, touched gently by wood. Crystalline, focused, and more concentrated than the 13' Foret on the palate, Raveneau's MdT is always so solid in their line-up. Long and mineral finish. Still hiding some depth as it got better with air, so will definitely benefit with more cellaring.

Move over Wheaties. This is the real breakfast of champions. Liquid Gold. The Rebelle brunch wine program right now is literally insane. @Patrick Cappiello you crazy bro.

Great but still tight, naturally. Couldn't pass it up though, at such a fair price. I assumed they wanted us to drink it.

A smidge soft as are most '12s, but I am not complaining regarding the layers of richness and complexity.
