Young, but accessible. Gun flint nose is instantly seductive descending like smoke onto brioche and twists of impossibly minute lemon peel, lime and tangerine piths, underripe pineapple freshness, Marcona almond, toasted sesame, chalky chunks have absorbed the smoke, and fallen citrus celebrates its rebirth. Lemon pith that oozes lemon skin oils like dewdrop diamonds. Incredible minerality that crystallizes into spines of grapefruit, dandelion, dried gooseberry, and marigold. Shiny, bright, crystal clean, and revelatory. Amazing compilation of parts that remains suspended like a chandelier in ethereal weightlessness.

Lemon, leek, lime, sage, dried pineapple and tangerine pith, jasmine and caperberry nose. Racy lemon pith and oils are rounded just slightly by green olive whisper, rich white grapefruit, snap pea and lemongrass. Seductive and fast!

Drinking really well right now.
Concentrated nerve of minerality and baked apples. Slight oak impression is just right.

White flowers yellow fruits , liquid minerals , Rich and broad on the pallet with excellent lift and a long powerful finish . A little rustic but overall nice juice !

2010 was a great vintage for Francois to break out. Clean, precise lines with silky texture. Picture a cube inside a sphere.
