What a nose. Lemon marzipan. Smoke, wood shavings. Stunning depth. Lemon fruits. Wow, juicy, clean, pure, spicy, mineral, icing texture. Awesome balance and freshness. Structured and deep. Clean.

Not as astoundingly flushed with width and depth as the rouge with the vintage. Tight textures and smoky minerality, chiseled, more precise and linear at first, and it’s opening into broadness comes with a youthful restraint. Will age well, and will be a fun wine to watch, I expect a lot of texture and intensity to come forth in a few years.

Stone fruit, smoke, almond with a nice hint of bitterness on the finish. Really intense. This will be fun to try in 10 years,

Minerarlity is out in force in this one. Surprising body for a white. Ripe stone fruit apricots. Some bell pepper. Almost a fluoride type finish. Quite enjoyable

Honeycomb, stone fruit. Precise and a bit tight. This is going to be great in a few years.
