Some funk and a touch oxidized, but in a refreshing way. Really shows its worth on days 2 and 3. An intellectual and structured aligote’.

We have this one paired with halibut, morels, calcots, butter braised turnips, and licorice root. There's a lot of variation within a case. 4 of every 12 bottles smell/taste like tidal pool in a bad way (stewed stagnant pond water). The other 8 are amazing! Like a tidal pool in a good way. Pure, clean, and fresh, like drinking the perfect stone you'd skip across a pond.

Not terribly expressive, but what showed through was good. Doesn't look anywhere near its 17 years. Dried lemon and white flowers, a hint of petrol, and surprisingly lively structure. Got a second bottle to see how it's progressed differently, and looking forward to it.
