Bready, preserved lemon, sharp minerality, almonds-almonds-almonds. A seriously great way to round out the holidays.

Enjoyable, mineral attack; mouthfeel is rich but mouse is a bit blowzy and not very chiseled or refined; and seemingly falls apart in mid palate and dissipates quickly like cotton candy.

100% oak fermented and no MLF. Disgorged in 2013. I am not sure if the nuttiness is deliberate here. Seems advanced even if not prominent but would expect more energy, aplomb and precision. The second bottle above has a more complete character.

Outstanding and I haven't said that about too many '07s. A lemon bomb with tons of minerality and length.

Anaemic and sleek, with tart citrus aromas and flavors. Juicy and persistent but lacks width on the mid-palate. Very nice pre-dinner style.
