Very slow, even ripening allowed the grapes to retain subtle, fresh flavours and remarkable acids. The resulting wines are pure, pretty and complex and will age incredibly well.
An exceptional vintage.
Mealy brioche notes backed by hazelnut (or nougat?). Thanks to the malo the palate is soft and creamy full of white peaches and whte nectarines, towards the back palate there are hints of orange citrus and yeallow peaches. My notes: This is the business!
"Stuck match, green melon, honey almond nougat, white miso, a slight mint and floral perfume. Light, crisp lemon and green apple acidity, yet with a creamy gloss, plenty of flint, umami flavours in a core of vibrant citrus and apple fruit. A very tight and chalky finish of excellent length. Complex. Distinctive."
