Honeycomb. This tastes like fresh honeycomb, from bees feasting on acacia pollen. Love the weight, love the texture, loved the purity of this wine.

Honeydew melon, apricots, apple cider, rhubarb, beeswax, saline, bitter almond flowers. Snapping acidity, oily texture, light bodied, salty-tart fruit finish. Acid forward, mineral driven, Vouvray acidity meets Savennières structure. Ultimate food wine.

Black Cod was right 🐟 - Distinct wine, searing acid, but softened with fresh white flowers, underripe stone fruits and pixie stick artificial candy mineral length. It was resting for two years and maintained it's beautiful character in comparison to the previous one consumed years ago.

2013 vintage
Насыщенный соломенный цвет. Нос тяготеет к прелым и чуть дымным нотам: осенняя листва, корзинка желтых яблок, сено, кремень и гранит; вкус более хрустящий и свежий: незрелые абрикосы, антоновка, лимон, мокрые камни, при нагревании миндаль. Среднее тело, ощутимая минеральность, высокая выпирающая кислотность. Натурально и слаженно, немного односложно.
