Critic Notes

A restrained if beautifully complex nose features notes of wet stone, Granny Smith apples, dried white flowers and a mix of primarily white orchard fruit scents, in particular pear. There is excellent concentration to the highly textured medium weight plus flavors that are imposing in their raw power and drive, all wrapped in an intensely mineral-driven finish that, like the Perrières, is borderline painful. Think patience here as plenty will be required before this is fully ready. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2021+
