Brought from our cellar and shared with the group present for dinner; decanted six hours prior and served with the cheese course. Temp was just a tad below cellar-temp. Nobody can ever call Joly’s wines boring and this is no exception with almost red wine characteristics. Hazy golden orange-ish color. Marmalade, stone fruits, and leather. Absolutely wild and yet, utterly captivating. Finishes long. Killer

Yellow apple, pear, quince, lychee, mandarin orange marmalade, white flowers, honey suckle, all spice. Very nice acidity, making we want to come back for more. The golden hue, this stuff is outrageous.

Just a stunning iteration of chenin blanc and proof and the Joly skill. If you find a bottle buy it.
