Two hour decanting. Just an amazing bottle of wine.

Gorgeous gold color, buttered toast, brioche, honeysuckle, orange blossom, lemon oil with some floral notes. Beautiful texture probably from the Roussanne component. Yet another masterful blending job by THE MAN. Full-bodied with nice crispness. Superb honeyed richness. 3 hour decant. Actually recommend holding these for a while. I'll be sitting on my remaining 11 (or at least 6 of them). They'll get nothing but better. If you can't wait, decant for a minimum of 3 hours.

This one changed a lot in the glass over an hour. Got a lot better with time.

Exotic and aromatic nose displaying white-stoned fruits and fresh brioche. Palette is lithe and textured for a white wine. Beyond medium sweet, finished with hard toffee notes. Good acidity brings up the rear. This is a serious white, with medium-term cellaring capabilities.

Very nice at the onset, much better 2 hours later. Incredibly well integrated.

13' Sine Qua Non Resiste. A Rhone & white burgundy blend. Full- Bodied ! I think if you asked 3 people, you would get three different opinions on the nose. Without a doubt floral/citrusy notes on the nose. Keeps EVOLVING in the glass, even after almost 2 hours of decanting. I'm in love with the balance of this wine. Just enough acidity/oak in it. The palate is full of pineapple, peach, orange peel, donut holes, honey, etc. This and the Ovid white(Rhone/ Burgundy)are worth looking into. The difference is the SQN could age another 10+ years. I'll wait a few years to open the rest of them.

Yeah, not sure what the “pro” rating of 9.1 is all about. Probably tried it too young. The last time I had this was 2015 and it is SO much better. Just look at that honeyed color! Fantastic aromas of dried lemon peel, hints of vanilla, and white flowers. Impeccably balanced (but does need to be dropped siginificantly below cellar temp - say to 50 F - for it to come into focus. Takes about 30min in the glass to express, then it is awesome. Fantastic stuff!

Incredible wine! Orange/yellow color with really a kaleidoscope of tropical flavors that continued to evolve and change throughout the course of the meal....even with a 2 hour decant.
