That indescribable morel nose. Nougat, spring grass, rocks, flowers, green apple. So generous and juicy. Awesome fruit and mineral. So balanced and dazzlingly pure. Awesome texture and mineral sweetness. What a showing.

Nose starts off quiet. But then slowly unfurls. Insanely perfumed. Gorgeous. White flowers, green apples, intense crushed rocks, so pure, so lifted. Palate is just so complete. Balanced like it is vibrating on it’s own plane. Elegant and super pure with a big mineral core. Showing only green apple skin fruit at the moment. But mega juicy and bright with terrific structure. The final one and it’s as great a swan song as I’d ever want. Salty and much longer that it should be finish. Terrific depth and concentration. Truly the sum of its parts wine. There is a completeness and uniqueness to this wine that is a direct result of the sum of its parts that I’ve never seen reproduced anywhere in Burgundy.
