Needs an hour to open up. Great juiciness. Green element is there. Especially on the nose. Great finish though.

Wow. Stunning. Nose of lemons, grilled nuts, no waxiness, super mineral and so deep. Insane aromas. Outrageous acidity and such clarity and authority to the flavors. Juicy and lean. Delicate and so long. Beautiful wine. So good today.

Vintage 2014 | Razorsharpe Chenin Blanc with minerality. Not a wine to get acquainted with the grape, it does by no means try to charm you. But for lovers of a Chenin Blanc, it is top! Nice acidity. Pure. | A lot like @Peter van den Besselaar ’s Boudignon from last week. Happy Birthday! 🎂

Feather light but dense, almost chewy. Shy nose. Smoky, stony. Sleeping giant.
