Staying on the Nebbiolo trail
Vibrant, energetic, fresh & juicy. Full of sweet cherry & raspberry, with a flower whiff and a stony-tarry undertone. So enticing!
Medium bodied, with juicy cherry acidity and amazing tannins - silky, finely grained, offering ajuicy, yet firm bite. Perfectly ripe.
Nice depth & purity and great cherry & cherry flower note.
This an ode to youth! Keep your Barbaresco Rosetta’s till they aged with truffle & balsamico while you devour the young, crunchy, joyful „simple” Nebbiolos.

Slow to open up, with time shows amazing raspberry purity paired with undergrowth freshness, tree bark sapiness, and a mineral earthy edge.
So fine & elegant on the palate, perfectly evolved with a beautiful superfine tannic frame, filled with juicy, fresh raspberry galore. Great depth here and brilliant purity.
This is amazing truly beautiful wine.

Ripe exotic nose with pineapple, yellow pear, guava, but also a stony undertone.
On the palate with nice breadth but also fresh acidity. Juicy, ripe yellow fruit with a cool herby finish. Nice energy & length.
Nice blend that falls not far stylistically from southern Burgundy but does not become a caricature.
Nice. — 14 days ago
A crunchy, vibrant field blend of Nebbiolo & Croatina ++. Full of energy & character.
Ripe cherries with flowery notes, underlined with some stony minerality and a bit of orange zest freshness. So enticing & fresh. Very alive.
Joyful & crunchy on the palate with edgy, juicy tannins, zippy acidity and cherries galore. Delicious, unpretentious stuff - so drinkable and so food friendly. Another benchmark glou-glou wine.

Needs a bit of air upon opening to blow off the reductive edge.
Shows juicy, ripe, creamy blueberry with a bit of toasted and a fresh, mineral streak.
The magic happens on the palate - brilliant energy & depth. Great, pure, juicy, fresh blueberries with rocky minerality. Sappy, velvety tannins, vibrant acidity, so fresh.
This is brilliant stuff - complex, elegant, quite serious. And so drinkable. . — 12 days ago
Much brighter than I had in memory from prev vintages. Red fruit with crunchy cherry, some blackberry & blackcurramt emerge after some time, the wine quiets with time and starts showing more Bordeaux blend characteristics.
Nice mouthfeel, juicy, fresh, the tannins surprisingly present & vibrant. Nice earthy, leathery accent towards the finish adds complexity.
A safe bet with a steak that rarely disappoints. — 13 days ago
Very enticing nose with black currant leaf, fresh, sappy black currant, a bit of damson plum, cedar wood, some gravelly earthy notes, a bit of mocca and a fresh uplifting mentol note at the finish.
On the palate this is a beautiful classic St. Julien.
Layers of creamy dark fruit with a savoury edge, mid weight on the palate yet with a beautiful coating mouthfeel, the tannins so polished and so juicy, the acidity fresh.
Very elegant and very complete - and quite youthful for 15y. Really nice depth and long finish.
This is quite a wine - not flashy at all, but delicious and quite serious. — 9 days ago

Classy & elegant with ripe black fruit, exotic spices, a touch of leather, a whiff of wilted violets and orange zest. A bit earthy & mineral, too though showing youthful freshness & energy.
Poised & very elegant on the palate with beautifully polished yet grilly tannins and juicy acidity. Layers of black fruit with wood shrimp seamlessly integrated. Nice volume & depth, terrific energy in the long finish. A classic Rioja reserva and the perfect wine for late fall.
Looking forward to tasting it over the next few years. — 15 days ago
