Tasting Notes: Multiple yeast strains contribute to the expansive complexity concentrated in barrels. Barrel fermented in new Rousseau puncheons with Piano Toast, first fill Francois Freres Burgundy barrels and small Stainless barrels for 8.5 months followed by 16 months sur lies. The wine has aromas of citrus and melon, dried white flowers and cardamom seeds, minerals, and chalk, coupled with vibrant yet balanced acidity and rich mouthfeel. A wine crafted to stand on its own yet pairs excellently with many foods, including delicate oysters and seafood.
