Almost rhoneish... sweet honeyed fruit with a slightly oxidative edge. Nice balance.

Yesss I was eager to see. This stands up to the years--the acid! That's what seems to make a 2008 from Savoie hang in. Get in. Nuance and balance yas.

Holy moly delicious. Slightly oxidative but ripping acid to balance. Serious Savoie.

Wasserman inc is for real. This Savoy is some weird combo of Reisling and white Burg. Perfect.

Superb. Beautiful nose, very aromatic. Tropical fruits, Meyer lemon, slightly oxidative and buttery. On the palate: great texture, bright, mineral, super ripe pineapple, and refreshing acidity. A treat from the French alps.
