Powerful white is an understatement even for older vintage. Uniquely Northern Rhone flavor profiles but tad expensive.

I'm not even a Marsanne fan, but this was drinking incredibly well. Still going strong.

Refreshing, sweet flavor, aroma of honeysuckle, and pleasant aftertaste.

Decanted for 2 hours. Shy in the bouquet but great mouth feel and depth.

Oxidative honeysuckle notes but they are not overpowering. There is still a nice citrus and acid backbone. A very enjoyable wine.
