Terrific freshness, good fruit concentration and depth, but it remains restrained and elegant with stony mineral nuances. The fresh acidity is beautifully balanced with a mouth-coating creamy texture on the palate, which is brought about by barrel fermentation and maturation in these vessels on the gross lees for 7 months. Furthermore, 33% of this blend is Sémillon, which contributes weight and texture, making this a truly harmonious blend with an intriguing saline quality that lingers well onto your next sip.
