Tasting Notes

“This 5ha vineyard has a soil not dissimilar to the supernal site Baiken, and is currently among the best (and most reliable) wines emerging from this tragically under-exploited commune. This ’16 adds a silvery mineral gleam to the usual exotics, and the top notes of ginger and coconut make it even more intricate, more brilliant. Another wine at-peace with all life’s questions, not because it has answers but because the questions are the right ones. They used to call a wine like this “racy,” and I myself use the word “vamping” but this is no cheap seduction.” Terry Theise
