Big evocative nose. Lemon drop, herbal, ripe pears. Minerals galore and some nice dry earth. Really complex and mineral. Opulent yet layers of acidity. Finishes super mineral with a nice structure. So juicy and clean.

Lovely aromas of lemon, citrus, pear, mineral & acacia flower.

Corkage at Simon and the whale. Punches well above it’s weight class. Decanted for an hour. Impressive concentration and richness. Killer pairing with gnocchi, mushrooms, and black truffle

Amazingly smooth, perfect in every way. Everything you’d hope for from this vintage and maker. Saint Aubain 👍🏼.

More of an austere style that is bone dry with good acidity, lemony citrus, green apple & mineral with a hint of matchstick

From magnum. This initially showed little other than some pleasant reduction; then opened up to reveal lime-curd fragrance with "good" reduction elements of roasted nuts, matchstick and brioche. Seemed to lengthen in flavor over time in the glass. Excellent cut/acidity,
