Feels a bit smothered in oak. There is fruit and acidity in there, and minerals too, but right now this isn’t much fun. It’s just fresh bread and vanilla.
Ripe, limey nose, elegant body and weight with a charming wet stone note on the finish. Harmonious and balanced, very pretty.
Full, creamy GV with a gorgeous leesy consistency, nice blossoms on the nose and a mineral streak running through its considerable length. Just cut pineapple fruit and white pepper. Very expressive and enjoyable now.
Generous fruit, lychee, kiwi fruit, quite aromatic and exotic, with gorgeous acidity that makes it sing. Such fruit purity and vitality here, a wonderful effort and so enjoyable already.

Tight, mineral almost chewy GV. Amazing structure, super focused fruit (barely ripe pear and quince). Dances across the palate with all manner of crushed rock and mineral notes. Exciting, elegant, extraordinary expression of GV. Nose has hints of hay, ripe Read more

Exotic, perfumed nose of angelica root and passion flower, similarly exotic fruits on the palate, dancing acidity, superbly elegant and poised. Such a delicate pretty wine, but so focused and multi-dimensional too. Excellent.
