The 2016 ‘Bionic Frog’ by superstar vigneron Christophe Baron is a monumental new wine from this storied estate. On the nose this takes on green peppercorn with horse manure, bacon fat, licorcice and shades of white truffle shavings on this downright seductive nose. The palate slowly unveils a silky mouthfeel that entices. The brightness and salinity of the wine literally makes you salivate as this shows off green olive tapenade, charcuterie, fennel, and shades of wild blackberry all sing marvelously together. Seamless and downright marvelous in its youth, this scintillating new wine will cellar well for another decade or more.
