A little disappointing. Crisp with some CO2 but not very interesting for a few years in

Showing its age as well as a lot of botrytis. Besides the acidity it was more akin to an aged Alsace Pinot Gris.

Apple juice and candied lemon nose. Simultaneously playful and pretty, as well as structured and serious. Secondary fresh squeezed orange juice and spring flowers. I'm calling it breakfast Riesling.
