"This wine has the refinement you might hope to find in VosneRomanee. It smells like the sun on limestone, when the earth is giving up its humidity. What it doesn't smell like is fruit, the flavors based more on stemmy scents of celery seeds and leather. For now, it's all about mineral tannin, that minerality lasting with intensity. Give this several years to mellow and it should prove to be a savory beauty..."
"A subtle touch of wood frames pretty and seductive aromas of ripe dark berry fruit, soy, hoisin and a hint of anise, all of which can be found on the round and slightly austere flavors that finish in a pure, linear and minerally finish. This is almost Cistercian in personality at present and will require a few years in bottle to flesh out but it should be capable of that because there is good midpalate concentration. A quality villages."
