Green gold. Evinces a very pure, tart choke cherry aspect while retaining sweeter suggestions of blueberry compote with liqueur-like intensity. Tree sap, cake batter, purple iris and the fat of the clean lees in a peacock’s tail of inferences. Massively concentrated with the tension and torque of a great Chevalier Montrachet. The finish is indomitable. Will still improve. Now – 2030+.
