Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A handsome man in a pale gold color with reflections greens. The nose is intense and frank, with notes of crunchy yellow fruits, broom, and lime shoots.The mouth is mineral from the attack, full of freshness and liveliness on zesty notes of lime. The finish is mineral, precise and chiseled.

95 Points - Ian Blackburn

2021 is a tiny crop but this wine is sensational. Pale, clean, fresh nose of layers of citrus and minerality.  Dense, meaningful qualities and above average intensity with balance and finesse. Floral, grapefruit, melon and tons of nuance.  Very classic but at a very high level. Color 14, Aroma 24, Body 23.5, Overall 33.5 = 95 points
