Minerals and acid, but a roundness and texture that coats the tongue on the finish. Anjou pears, apples, slightly underripe, white tea notes.

Super ripe, almost oxidative apple and stone fruit, candied ginger, honey, florals and petrol. Palate is consumed by tart apple and a round, persistent acidity. Medium+ body and a long acid-driven finish. Wish I had more to age, very interesting, delicious stuff.

2012 vintage
Ананас, незрелый абрикос, лимон, трава, минеральность. Хороший баланс веса и кислотной свежести. Просто, но естественно и чисто.
