Black tea, funk and old ticking on bed-springs bring antique-shop to its knees with polished wood and too many cigarettes on cold pond-water and fine china wrapped in crunchy newspaper. Heavenly honey-mint and fish-fry pose oily savor against stupid-ripe. Straight-heroin cherry fruit gnashes all the minerality a vineyard can muster against all the sweaty sex you can handle in one night. You either know where Les Galets is or you don’t. A very special vineyard in a very special place.
