Wow. Crisp and mineral and super concentrated. All green fruit. Gooseberry and kiwi and sugar snap pea. Tongue-searing pineapple-core acid. But not lean at all... mouth coating actually. Mineral spine and rock salt finish. Tremendous food wine.

The aromas of these wines transport me. Just like a field. Heavenly. Amazing depth and precision. So refined. Silky this is under $30. Lime zest, lime pith, airy, mineral, calming and zen like. White pepper. Palate is god level. So juicy and clean. Unbelievable refinement. Structured, balanced and so so juicy. Concentrated and deep with spring mineral favors and fresh vegetable flavors. But only the best ones like fiddlehead ferns, bok choy and others of that ilk. The finish is long. Wow. Longer than it should be. This is remarkable for its purity, poise and precision as this bottling always is. As it opens the wine’s aromas become confectionary. Electric acids. Not over the top acids but perfect acids. Gets it to a bit beyond lean. So good. Mineral wall of flavor on the finish. Just divine wine.

Stunning. Green sweets. Acid and freshness. Hint of bitter. White flowers. Less opulent than I thought. Long.

So so good. Glorious wintergreen mint and loads of mineral. Palate is rich yet also energetic with freshness from minerality but also excessive minerality. Green peas and sugar snap peas with a savory element and lovely length. Killer!

Vintage 2017 / from grapes that were planted in the eighties of last century, tremendous fine acidity, lots of minerals, too young but so much potential

Mineral nose, very clean and pure. So elegant and minerally and wow the refinement is the best yet. Acid not like 14, 13 but balance is sensational. Complex and almost like air on the palate. Zingy, sappy and leaves an impression of sweet greens on the palate.
