An exceptionally fresh & intensely floral... lime, lemon, stone & iodine... massive richness... breathtakingly powerful & intense... the sheer depth of underlying material that is almost hard to believe... In a word, brilliant.

Subtle, delicate aromas of white peach, mint, crushed stone and chlorophyll. Less complex today than the Preuses but this is still an infant. All about white peach lifted by white pepper. Fine-grained, silky and utterly vibrant wine...

This smells more like a minerally Beaune white than a Chablis. Rich, creamy, lightly spiced citrus aromas, thought the austere mineral foundation is still there. Chalky and stony in texture, softened by the creamy oak effect.
