Five years on tasting.
100% Gringet from eastern Savoie. Raised in concrete eggs.
Lemon-yellow. Rippling with energy to the point of hyperactivity. A smoldering intensity: moraine, lemon ice and a smoky mineral reduction. Stony citrus, tangerine and melon fruit with pinpoint, lapidary cut. Not too goose-pimpled or broody. The energy does face outward so this is readable and ripe. Ferrous and salt-crusted at the end. Seismic Savoie. Drink your bottle(s) by the glass over a week. Now – 2019.
