The nose needs a little oxygen to open up, and is then light but complete and quite complex, marries spicy depth and floral lift, mineral freshness, and some early tertiary development; the palate has lovely tension too, is light but not too dry, clean and precise, fresh and with correct phenolics; the finish has lovely length and displays attractive notes of underripe strawberries. Has a considerable charm, but the lack of weight and flesh are conspicuous.
