Fabulous. I just love those Rhone whites. Deep golden straw color. On the nose, melon, pineapple, and stone fruit, with a flinty edge and a whiff of smoke. Really nice. On the palate, papaya and pineapple intermix with stone fruit and a nice bite of acidity (green apple?). This has mellowed over the last 18 months, and should round into form in about 24+ months. Long finish.
p.s. really don't understand the notes below indicating that this lacks bite or acidity. If anything, the acidity is too prominent at that stage. Any more and it would be too harsh . . . .
