Appearance: Light to medium yellow Nose: Ripe yellow fruit, yellow apple, peach, some honey, almond, flowery with white flowers. Palate: Definitely dry, yellow and red apples, good concentration, some spice, rather high acidity. Summary: Almost blanc de blancs style despite being a blanc de noirs, 91 p.
Clear yellow colour. An elegant nose with ripe citrus fruit, some yellow apple and white peach, hints of melon, honey and almonds, white flowers and a discrete perfume note, some chalky minerality. Slightly more than medium bodied, with ripe fruit - citrus, red and yellow apples and some peach - on the attack, followed by an intense mineral character and high acidity. The aftertaste is long and fresh, with green apple, citrus and mineral aromas.
I'd say that the very first attack almost has sweetness in it because of its ripe fruit, although that might be misunderstood in a negative way, before it gives way to the quite dry mid-palate character. There is elegance and purity throughout. Drinkable now for its freshness, but should definitely be able to develop well for many years.
