Intense fruit and toasty aromas blended with the mineral notes typical of this appellation. A rich, powerful wine with a strong personality. Very good ageing potential.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Offering a mix of lemon, apple and stone flavors, this light-weight white is persistent, lingering with an aftertaste of apple, baking spices and mineral. Almost lacy in texture. Best from 2015 through 2022.—B.S. (Mar 19 2014)
