Light, bright yellow. Meyer lemon, pear nectar and jasmine scents show fine definition and pick up suggestions of tarragon and beeswax with air. Lively and precise on the palate, offering pliant citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a deeper suggestion of nectarine that builds on the back half. Shows very good clarity and mineral cut on the strikingly long finish, which leaves a sexy floral note behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, May 2020)

Just a bit thin on pop and pour, but fleshed out nicely with 15 min of air, Lovely with Fritto Misto -
