Like cheap Riesling blended with cheap Muscadet. One-dimensional, simple. Granny Smith, citrus and autolysis. Not bad, just not interesting.

Racy acidity but frankly I'd love to have left this one another 5 to 10 years. Stony citrus, petrol, and pear.

Stony I say smoky. Less fruit more mystery. Searing acidity nicely balanced with that subtle creaminess of sur lie. Softer, sweeter day 2 with a pleasant green pepper flavor
