The NV (2013) Extra Brut Sans Soufre Concordance is fabulous. Apricot, orange peel, chamomile, smoke and a host of yellow orchard fruit flavors give this Pinot Noir character. Today, the Concordance is brooding and tightly coiled. I would give it at least another 6-12 months on the cork to be at its best. Disgorged in April 2017 with no dosage.
