Nose has butter, some sweet wood and glorious minerals. Gorgeous lime zest. Apple spice as well. So clean and complex. Palate is gorgeous. Incredibly integrated and super mineral. Hint of wood and gobs of apple and pear fruit accented by gorgeous minerality. Juicy and so refined. Dazzling purity and freshness. Terrific depth. Brilliant wine.

@Delectable Wine this is same vineyard except it’s Chardonnay. I love this wine. And I love this site. Nose is complex, buttery and rich with intense minerality. Smells like Meursault. Awesome minerality. So rocky and also earthy. Palate is dense, juicy and so explosive. So pure and juicy with tiny berry fruit intensity. Finishes mineral and very sappy. So good. Long. Needs an hour to integrate. But another 2018 winner. Such freshness and purity.
