Ripe/fresh meyer lemon, excellent acidity and mineral with cheesy/leesy...i was hoping it be a little more opulent, and rich...but well done

A bit wanting in tension and cut. Ripe, but nice wine, all things considered

Nutty with a subtle minerality, though a bit madeirized.

Consistently great. Fresh, crisp and the absence of oak makes it so precise.

I just love this vineyard and Claudine knows exactly what to do with it. Just special and so hard to find in the US.
