Very bright and lifted and mineral. Great definition and real depth lurking beneath. A fine mousse with electric tension and acidity. Tightly wound but all in place. Great stuff. 2008 base.

Next level. It is impossible for me to think of it as being just a grape juice. Ever.

Bracing acid with huge material. I’m going to wait it out with the remaining bottles.
