(AM=91-93) A beautifully if subtly layered nose flashes really lovely complexity with its pure array of spiced pear, lavender, spice and citrus wisps. The equally pure and refined middle weight flavors possess an almost pungent minerality while offering fine depth and sneaky good length. (AG=91-93) Pale, bright yellow. Explosive aromas of lemon, licorice, lichee and toasted baguette. The palate delivers a captivating combination of sucrosit’©, roundness and enveloping minerality, without quite the bracing stoniness of a cooler year. This very fine-grained wine boasts terrific palate presence. Finishes suave and very long, with subtle hints of lime, mint and rock.
