2014 - robbed in its too youthful stage! The regular bottling is so yummy now - this one tightly wound and a little info ing at this stage - should age with grace.

Super clean and lighter style (all stainless?). Good summer wine.

Otherworldly beauty from Jessica Pratt and Pascal Janvier. This album has a haunting quality to it, but it haunts in an addictive way. The songs feel familiar, but they keep a uniqueness that sounds fresh every time I play it. If you don’t own this record, buy it. Janvier’s Silex is everything to love about Chenin. It’s crisp & approachable, yet has countless layers of aromatics & simultaneously shows a basket of fruit and an ethereal transparent weight. This is just amazing tonight.

Very bright and pointed for Chenin. Wish it was a little more Chenin-y. Maybe with some age it'll happen.

Scents of crushed oyster shell, apple, green tomato. On the palate, lively apple with just right tropical fruit and sweetness, balanced by typical, mouthwatering acid and memorable length...the kind that distinguishes the good from the "meh". Drank this with a hot/spicy chicken dish, and it rocked!
