One of the best white wines I have had in a while, contemplative and complex, lengthy and texturally engaging. This was firing on all cylinders. Probably what most white burg producers want their wines to age like. Impeccably fresh yet loaded with evolved character, seamless and so invigorating across the palate. Ripe citrus like tangerine, lemons, grilled yellow peach, pineapple, dried apricots, ceylon cinnamon, crushed rocks, white orchard blossoms, candied ginger, spring honey, roasted nuts, almond cream, herbs. Yes please!

Showing beautifully in its youth. Was not nearly as massive as I was expecting. Red fruits, earth, floral, anise, Grenachey goodness.
