This palpably dense but texturally rich, amply juicy and mouthwateringly salt-tinged bottling is formidable from the starting gate and gains stature with aeration. Lavender and chalk dust mingle with sweat and sourdough yeastiness in a nose-wrinkling display of pungency that anticipates the palate’s multifaceted and intriguingly mineral personality. A bottle open for six days displayed even greater grip and resonance, not to mention clarity and focus, than the one freshly opened and proved highly agreeable without being in the least less formidable. -- David Schildknecht
