Received this as Pascaline’s recommendation from her selection of Thibaud’s wines at Racines. What a wonderful woman and an equally vibrant wine. Citrus, energy, sheen, cut, density and length.

This wine is awesome. Electric. Like Meursault Perrieres made from Chenin.

Incredibly bright pomaceous and citrus fruit character laced with wet rocks and a kiss of smoke and cream. Bracing acid, precise, and edgy. Needs food or air right now. So much life and energy this wine can stand up to just about anything. Would love to revisit in 10+ years.

Damn! This wine was simply badass last night. Scintillating acidity, judo-like palate weight, explosive with apple and key lime in the nose and lots of smoky CLR. This wine will only become more interesting if you hold onto it, but it's an electrifying experience today. 2013 Vintage, A Francoise.

Wow that's crisp ! It wakes up your mouth and put it on a rollercoaster. Pears and lemon on the tongue, vanilla stands out on the first nose. Worth sharing with a bunch of friends with a nice and creamy goat cheese. :)

Great citrus and high acid. Opened with time but lacking mid palate richness.
