Loved this. Slightly floral, citrus, wet stones. High acid that screamed for fried seafood with copious amounts of lemon.

Wow. Still @corkbuzz. Another new French appellation for me and 2 new grape varieties- Petite and Gros Manseng. Amazing with the hamachi crudo. The world just got bigger.

Wonderful wine! Wet almonds, wet stone and lemon. Finishes clean. Interesting white from Basque country.

Love this wine. Nose has lemon and mineral but is a bit cold to assess. Now with air nose is all grapefruit pith and insane other just ripe citrus. Will be back on that. Palate is exceptionally mineral, with juicy Meyer lemon fruit and such acid intensity. Like biting into a sweet high end lemon. Long finish with dazzling purity.
