Celebrating the hike up to La Chappelle the only way I know how. Subtle yet extremely inviting nose, marzipan, fresh sweet cream, fresh masa/corn husk, green almond, white flowers, quince, yellow peach, baked pear, marshmallow, granite (go figure), radish. Found the oak subtle, and while leesy its really layered in nicely. Great interplay of Marsanne bass and Roussane treble. I could see this being really fun in 10 years but its so lovely now, open knit and fresh.

Fat, oily and dense, this will be a long-distance runner, and while lowish in acidity its presence of chalky minerality provides freshness and loads of complexity. Unique flavor profile and very fun to drink. Loved it.

Nose of honey, ripe apple, and fresh flowers. Balanced acidity, with slightly sweet, lingering finish.
