Delicate nose- soft lime, some seashells and fresh wet rock. Great balance on the palate. Saline, some sweet honeyed secondary notes coming through. Subtle and delicious.

Straw gold, light and bright. Fragrant floral nose. Notes of Meyer lemon, wet stones, honey, apricot. Big and impactful with long tangy finish. Great juice. Can improve with more age.

Medium gold, heavy in the glass. High pitched nose, fruit forward. Notes of sweet lemon, sea breeze, lime blossoms, wet river stones, white clay earth, and some honey. Powerful impact in the mouth. Lots of fruit and acidity to match. This is still on the upswing.

With a disappointing '02 of this sitting nearby, this has the appearance and nose you want... light straw gold, vibrant in the glass. A nose of sea breeze, oyster shells, a tiny bit of honey, some soil and white stone. Great fine grained acidity in the mouth. Lasting finish. This is still on the upswing.

The best bottle of this specific wine I've had, and I've had a lot!

On pop this was wonky and smelled of dirty socks in the hamper. Decanted and put away for 2 hours. With time and air this started to strut. Racy green apple, baked brioche.

More oxy than ideal. Freshening up, but marred with aldehydic, fino inflection.

Still super young. 04 dauvissat la forest... Tight with lemon, tangerine and orange blossom. Subtle oak frames the bright fruit. I wish we had decanted this one but c'est la vie. Still delicious. Wish I had more
