Wow. Wow, wow, wow.
Is it Olivier LeFlaive? No. No, it’s not Hospice de Beaune. It’s from Bergerac, a region you might be hard pressed to locate on a map. You’ll want to visit after half a bottle. What balance. What sensational balance. Honestly, this was just a wine of exceptional craftsmanship, it didn’t veer towards the barrel or overpower with acidity or accidentally find itself in a corner knee deep in butterscotch. It was honed or finessed or managed to a brutal simplicity, toasty nuts, wild honey, tropical blossoms. Just a treat. An absolute treat. One of the reasons we drink so much different wine is to discover something like this. Did I say wow?
Price: Gifted. Couldn’t source a local provider but it retails in other provinces near the $50 mark and that would be the 2015.
Market Liquidity: Nadia Comenici in a bottle.
