Gorgeous nose of lemon, minerals, lime rock candy, incredibly refined. Palate is like a baby Corton Chatlrlemagne with a kiss of oak, luscious Golden minerality, incredibly compact and complete with terrific energy, awesome sap and concentration with terrific purity and density. So clean and balanced with a terrific long finish.

Like a baby Corton Charlemagne. Love this wine. Lemon and lime candy on the nose. Citrus and apple. Minerals galore. Stunning aromas. Complex, high acids that just sizzle but are so tasty, juicy fruit and a whack of limestone. Terrific power and grace. Good concentration. Very pure. Almost crystalline. Very chewy and dense. So long. Balance is heavenly. So good. Always so good.

Beautiful minerals on the nose. Sea water, sea salt and green apple. Terrific aromas. Lovely intense earthiness as well. Incredible purity, nuttiness, more elegance. Explosive.

Nice acidity, with lemon/lime citrus and zesty apple flavors, and rocks in background. May need a year though. Lots of oak.
