It has a Burgundian bouquet of mulled stone fruits, brioche, green almonds, and chalky minerality. Just hitting 13% natural alcohol, it offers medium-bodied richness, a beautiful, layered texture, bright yet integrated acidity, and a great finish. Straight-up classy, it’s going to evolve positively for 2-4 years and keep for over a decade.

It’s full-bodied, yet vertical and deep on the palate. Takes you down deep and energizes you. Extremely well done. Drink or hold.

The palate is light to medium-bodied with a silky texture and gently nutty character, finishing long, fresh and mineral driven. Lovely! - Erin Brooks
