Château Pierre-Bise, Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu Les Rouannières 2002

Bise Layon 2002

Beaune Imports, Berkeley, CA.

Burnished patina, silicon bronze, reminds me of a ’76 Sauternes.  In contrast to his color, this is rainwater fresh.  Hypnotic is the call and echo of stony minerality, fruit ripeness and silvery herbs.  Lavish texturally yet limber for his mass, with affirming acidity to finish the wine and maintain the elegance.  Nourishing and fine.  Now – 2022+.
