Tasting notes
Pale golden-green color. Considerable intensity on the nose. . It has an exceptional full range of floral, exotic and citrus fruit aromas such as white blossoms, hawthorn, white nettles and grapefruit. These notes are enhanced and strengthened by the moneral note of gunflint. The flavor is pleasant and lively, tempered by a fruity roundness with notes ofpear, green apples and citrus fruits.

 Wine Spectator 88 points (Jun 15 2014)
Bright, with lemon chiffon, white peach and gooseberry notes. The finish is a touch soft, kept honest by a flicker of herb. Drink now. 2,500 cases imported.-JM
