Open for 16 days. And it still tastes like fresh Nerello. This is crazy juice. Say what you will about Frank Cornelissen, he definitely makes some compelling wines.

Same rating as the last bottle. Bursting with fruit and very mineral. Plenty of structure so needs a decent decant

Smoothest is the Cornelissen wines (ex magma). “The most Burgundian of all the crus”

The night won't end, but so cool and esoteric wine. Yum. Again, Brooklyn, Four Horsemen.

Levons bday wine at Santina. Such a special wine. Cloudy, almost effervescent, with as much fruitiness as earth. Mineral finish. Such a treat!

2013. Beautiful, subtle. Volcanic minerality and high acidity with floral and dried cherry aromas. Underwhelming at first but grew in stature with air. $127 at dinner at Blanca, NY.
