A real stunner. Slightly soft in the middle yet all the better for it. Nose is grapefruit and honey, citrus, crisp green apple. Palate is honeyed and bright, discernable residual sugar, great balance and acid. Delightful.

This is one of my longstanding favorite white burgundies, at any price. Perfect on this cold night: ripe, honey and apple.

Minerally Riesling aromas, slightly lactic. Thick California body but no artificial boost, internally not profound but likely hidden beneath the fat. Aromatic range is not wide but solid in the middle. Not long and resonant but immediately tactile. Masterly interpretation of 2014 vintage.
much improved on the third night, left open at room temperature, the surface aromas have evaporated and the mineral structure is evident, no sign of oxidation and strong foundation is very impressive.
