Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.
Yellow-gold. While not labeled as a vintage, this is entirely 2008 juice and he’s aérienne for earth-bound Verzenay, a magic carpet ride of steel and savor. Melon and nut-skin with salty inner thickness and he’s intimate at the end, where every drop of rain goes by a name. 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, from Carreaux, Corret, Coutures and Perthos; dosed at 9 g/l. Now – 2018+.
