Stupendous, maybe the best Rhône white I’ve ever had. Pale gold, smells like tiny white spring blossoms, baked apple and Meyer lemon. Viscous, oily mouthfeel with more lemon and flowers, peaches, melon, honey, tea and marzipan, a little smoky on the back, somehow maintains great freshness through all of that. The Gonon St Joseph rouge is probably overrated at this point (I wouldn’t know, it’s been a while and it’s too expensive) but this might be underrated

Slight barnyard nose. Gives way to a nice full bodied wine. A bit rustic/tannic but well integrated and nice for a young wine.
