(25+ year old vines aged in 25% new wood). Whiffs of mineral reduction and matchstick are present on the cool and airy aromas of pear and acacia blossom. The racy, intense and overtly mineral-driven medium weight flavors conclude in a compact and linear finish. This is clearly quite backward and is going to need most of a decade to arrive at its peak. 91/2024+
