Wonderfully deep, fruity, citrusy nose, with a bit of a floral/straw like note. Crisp and minerally in the mouth, with a bit of bitter lemon-lime in the finish. Nice acids. Would be dynamite with grilled seafood. Nice as an aperitif too.

Cepage traditionnel. Sec, tendu, sans gras excessif. Sable/argile/limon. Potentiel de garde. Altitude qui fait garder la fraîcheur.

Taking on lovely, nuanced secondary characteristics. Still lots of structure. Great stuff. I love when a 10 dollar wine makes you feel like you could have dropped 50 on it.

N: ripe peaches and cantaloupe, ginger, vanilla
P: ripe and round up front, lemon and mineral notes kick in to balance out the richer fruit notes. Hint of lactic whey quality in the mix.

Lots of lemon and apple, but nothing interesting.
