Holy moly what a crazy expressive bouquet upon opening. Orange zest, quince, pear, cantaloupe explode from the glass. Crazy minerals too, a strong granitic quality. The palate is rich, with a nice bit of RS. There’s a heft and volume that’s impressive, but also kind of overbearing. Rich and round, but like a lot of ‘18 Loire Chenins this lacks just the bit of acid that makes you not want to put down the glass. That said with such a mineral spine and serious texture I’m betting on positive development with time.
