Yes it is biodynamic which I tend to dislike, moreover this wine travels very badly and most of the bottles I drunk in the USA were bad. Surprise this one is really good. Color straw golden (my wife immediately caught on and looked surprised until I told her “bio”. Slightly oxidative, smokey, good mineral content. Warm vintage but pulls it off. Best coulee I ever tasted in NY.

Tasted blind. Medium gold color. Crazy nose with notes of pineapple, tangerine, stones and some soil. Sweet pit fruit and amazing texture in the mouth. Guessed mid 80s Leflaive. Was happy being wrong with that guess. Fun wine.

Prestige and soft acidity. Orange peel notes clean and very approachable. Clean and layers of exotic tangerine. This is a real treat!!

Straw yellow sherry like oxidized. Still need to drink my first biodynamic wine that I really would like.

Gold color. Honeyed apricot, spice, honeysuckle, biting acidity and mineral finish. Good this time, not great.
