Gold. Time in bottle has brought out a sweeter straw and earthy organics.  Ornamented and mirabelle-flavored, fat and full.  Now.

Gold. Vinous, galvanic and clever, such is the yin-yang of snappy minerality and burnished swell. Boldly Aube, the generosity and sheer ripeness of fruit more than compensates for the lack of dosage. Crackery at the end. Now – 2020.
