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

Maddeningly inconsistent...this was good but had some weird plasticky volatile stuff going on and also a bit oxidized

I don't think I've had an example of this wine vinified by Virginie until now. In my humble opinion, quality is WAY UP now. Too many pre-2006 examples were mealy, oxidized and awkwardly alcoholic. I'm glad to see one of the world's most enviable vineyard sites skew toward quality rather than simply bio-d dogma (again -- humbly opining).

The toast on this oak must ++. Burnt sugar, liquor finish, devastatingly interesting, lemon, slightly oxidized, wow.
