Exhibiting aromas of lemon oil, warm bread, hazelnut cream, wet stones and smoke, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and nicely concentrated, with a racy spine of acidity, a fine mousse and delicately chalky structure, concluding with a long and pure finish. - William Kelley

The powerful backbone of acidity is finely meshed with a range of delicate yellow plum, toast point, pickled ginger and preserved lemon notes. Offers a long, racy finish. Disgorged August 2017. Drink now through 2033. — A.N.
