This second wine is youthful and fresh, with minerally and flint notes swirling in the nose. The Bordeaux white blend, which retails well into the triple digits, appreciated each year from 2017 to 2021.

This is a gorgeous rippling wine with a clear muscular frame. It's a year where there are more tannins than in 2018, and this has a wonderful two-step, fruit tannin fruit tannin rhythm that propels the wine forward through the palate. Iris flowers and berry fruit, with smoked-tinged cedar oak.
