Limpid yellow-gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of peach, Anjou pear, melon and Meyer lemon, along with a bright floral overtone. Juicy and densely packed, displaying a deft interplay of richness and vivacity to the citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Picks up smoky lees, honey and iodine nuances with air and shows excellent clarity and back-end lift. The strikingly long, penetrating finish echoes the mineral and citrus fruit notes and betrays no rough edges. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Feb 2018)

This is really terrific. Blind I would have guessed Meursault or Puligny. In a good place with a bit of air and not too cold. Glad I have more.
