Very little fruit on this, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing at 8-9yrs old. This is definitely on the more rich and powerful side of the spectrum. Roasted lemon, honeyed papaya and sea salt aromatics. Savory on the palate...burnt popcorn kernel, cashew and a mineral driven finish.

From a mag, love the bright acidity and juiciness of this wine.

Magnum. A little oaky for me but enjoyable nonetheless. Much bigger fan of their Pinots but everything is well made.

Out of magnum. Great texture and balance. Favorite of the lineup that day.

Honey, pear, hazelnut. Great acidity. Good ringer for Burgundy.
