This is a bit confounding. Maybe the most austere white wine I’ve ever had. Liquid rocks and seashells with saline undertow, cut grass, and a curiously a hint of coconut milk. Long and dense on the palate and finish. Practically undrinkable on its own, but it shone with some Reblochon. Needs food and/or a few years to soften up. Hard for me to judge this wine at my level of experience.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
