Dinner party, no formal notes.
Finally a good bottle on this, too much bottle variation previously!

Had this when we got engaged, and every December since. 9th one and definitely the best. Fruit has gone uber tropical, white mushroom and chamomile popping, and the acid is bright as ever!

Extra1/2 point for sentimental reasons. Drink one every year and love watching the evolution. Aromas of OJ concentrate (?!), apricot, might blossoms, button mushroom, and wet stone. PalAte shows fresh orange, lemon peel, great weight, and tons of cut. Acid for days.

I've prob had 20+ bottles of this wine & all excellent, but none showed as well as this one. Just perfect; fruit alive and precise, mineral balance and laser cut precision. So lucky.

So fun to taste an older vintage of these wines. Still in balance. Medium body, high acid still after 11 years. Waxy, honeyed, yet crisp with a touch of sweetness.

Full of wet stones and dried pineapple and texture for DAAYYYZ! The palate has the texture of young hermitage blanc without the bitterness

Great, but still ever so young. Hold. Jesus, this is not GV. This app is too hard to use if I have to correct wines all the time.
