Nose is dense with a bit of honey. Pear. Quince.

Palate is rich. Nicely fruited.

Damned good. I just opened it bc I was thirsty. This is really good.

A hint of heat or id rank this higher.

On day 2 heat is gone. Richness is grand cru level. Utterly delicious and hedonistic. Still balanced. Nose has ethereal minerality. Kiss of lime peel. Wtf is going on here. This is like drinking corton charlemagne! Wtf? What the fuck ?!?!? Lingering mere kiss of elegant honey.

Whatever. This is a 9.5 even though it’s a village wine.
