Sometimes you run into something that completely resets your expectations, and this was one of them. I was impressed with its amazing metamorphosis an hour after opening the bottle. The light, elegant simplicity took on more weight, becoming pungent, savory and feral. Redolent with roasted meat, candied flower, raspberry kirsch and river stone…a very Burgundian approach to Châteauneuf that has amazing complexity and structure.

To boot, this wine scored 90-92 points out of barrel by Galloni’s Vinous critic in France, Josh Raynolds.
