Tasting Notes

The flat vineyard is basically gravels over a loess bedrock, tending to give solid stony wines. This wine is certainly impressive, massive and solid, almost not “GV” any more. I wonder whether Vincent isn’t “forcing” it into a power and density it doesn’t want to contain. A thicker mid-palate would have joined the somewhat monolithic solidity to the varietal vetiver. In the end there’s an herbal saltiness and chili-thread warmth, and all of it is brilliant, strong and intense, yet curiously not rich. -Terry Theise
