Incredible wine 👌
Wooden, slightly nutty at smell. Very complexe. Fresh, wood, floral at taste.
Great experience! Sheers 🥂

A lovely bottle of this; super fresh and loaded with citrus rind and minerals. Holds great promise for the future - 2012

2008, My best Macon ever! Rich smooth elegant and yummy!!!
This fine Macon was just spectacular, the color is deep gold reflecting its age, the nose is truly an elegant melange of nuts, butter, lime, citrus, grape fruit ant a zest of minerals! The body is complex, rich, smooth, round, concentrated and rewarding, with perfect acidity, the finish leaves you wondering where were you in 2009 when this was released and how come you did not secure your 12 pack ;-).My score 90, drink 2010-2016
