Chasselas at its best, #Gonon knocked it out of the park with this waxy and slightly oily textured gem. White flowers, macadamia nuts, bright and sweet lemon, a touch of honey and a firm minerally spine. If you have not had #Chasselas I can't recommend this one more. Best of the 3 bottles tasted in the last year.

Very drinkable with fine edges and subtle fruit. Slate and Mineral yet round and approachable.

Wax, honey, melon and orange peel, a touch of fresh herbs, cool stuff.

Lemon zest, Earl Grey tea, faint honey, and mineral water. So quiet, but supremely delicious.
