Still young and needs lots of air. But then displays classic scents of yellow orchard fruit, waxy notes, and liquid minerals. Very minerally in the mouth. Nice persistence and the texture is a bit fat, as Roussanne can be, but not too much, and there’s also pretty decent acidity. A little bitterish note emerges in the long finish

Mostly Marsanne with some Roussanne. Stunning nose. Honeyed, mineral, some exotic fruits but does not smell like it will be a mushy void of acid typical N Rhone white. Rich, fresh with that engaging nervy strange Marsanne minerality. Really graceful and good acids and freshness. Very pure. Long. Very very well made.
