What a beautiful, intense, concentrated colour, a brilliant expression of youth and vivacity. Its aromatic expression is not just rich and complex, but at the same time has a purity of style that combines the aromas of almost over-ripe fruit with the steely, mineral character of an emerging Riesling. A well balanced, supple bouquet. Caressing the palate with a delicate, gentle softness, its even, purposeful character emerges gradually, revealing an infinite palette of flavours, refined and elegant. Without any doubt a wine that knowledgeable collectors will savour in years to come, to drink at 8°C with friends, on its own, or with foie gras, or with fine dishes in sweet and sour sauces.

A softer style, with tropical fruit—pineapple, orange, apricot—coursing throughout. Firms up on the finish, but lacks a bit of cohesion. A mineral accent graces the lingering finish. Drink now through 2020. 5 cases imported.
