Dreamtasting #1 (Restaurant Le Défi, Sprang-Capelle): Beautiful concentration, very unctuous but not cloying mouthfeel. Fruit is still fresh and, of course, very ripe and juicy. Interesting vegetal aromas of fresh garden herbs, fennel and steamed vegetables (carrots, peas, string beans). Also some earthy, sweaty, outdoorsy impressions. Great, great wine in its prime drinking window, but with lots of future. 18,5/20
Light yellow with a hint of green. Very fresh nose wıth lime, wax, honey and chamomile. Strong mineral notes with a long dry finish, but flavors have faded over the years such that the alcohol is a bit prominent for my taste. Others disagreed and found the finish smooth rather than hot. Either way, a distinctive and lovely wine.
