Nice start but ultimately disappointing. Nose of slightly saline minerals, crisp green apples. Brash in the mouth with a good acid attack, some minerals and a touch of saline, with some fruit surfacing. Finish is bland with a light mouth feel. Work well at first with food, but grew boring as it failed to reveal much complexity and felt flat on its own. Might work well as just one glass with some sea food cooked with herbs or spices.
Golden yellow colored. Awesome aromatic display: golden apples, honey, dried wax, some oily notes, cherry blossoms, so complex. Plump and fleshy on the palate, but crisp acid. Complex fruit flavors (apricot, yellow apple, lychee) mix with a slew of non-fruit flavors (wet stone, minerals, chalk, flowers, honey). Full but composed, long finish. Very pretty stuff that I'd actually like to cellar for two or three years. Just got back from a Roussillon trip and figured I'd keep the streak going. What a great bottle for $20.
