From two old vine sites in Vertus, this has been one of my favorites for more than a decade. The vintage, 2009 is on the back label. It is fermented in large, old wood. While this wine has no dosage it has the ripeness to achieve balance. A big Chassagne mouthfeel and a long chalky finish!

Fairly rich and broad, candied lemon, citrus sorbet, elegant mousse, yeast, touch of almondpaste. Gorgeous wine!

Weight, body, & gentle yet breezy acid playing softly in the background.

Quite lean and herbal. Medicinal minerality.

Not a bad way to start a sales meeting. The '09s have so much potential for midterm cellaring. Or just pop them now. So precise and chalky, then the rich fruit pushes through. #valkyrieselections #swc

2009 vintage - Meh upon opening, but developed very nicely. Deep Chardonnay flavors.
