At first I thought the wine was served too cold because the nose was almost non-existent. After 20 mins scents of apple skin stared to show up. Once I tasted the wine I realized the acid was acting like a Whac -A-Mole mallet. Every time the fruit tried to pop up it was whacked. The ingredients needed to be a solid wine is there it just needs time to unfold.

This would kill with oysters. A little bit of salinity and a ton of minerality. Grapefruit and lemon on the nose and palate. From our tasting at Domaine des Roche Neuve.
