It has this quiet power to it. A slick, lightly creamy roll that slips over palate with concentration yet freshness, licks of wood spice and nougat, a core of lemon-squeezed-on-green-apple acidity. It’s quite lovely in its flourish of fruit and winemaking. The bouquet steps up too, more green apple and citrus, whiffs of nougat again, a sense of struck flint or warm stones. Lots to like here. Lots. Drink: 2018-2030
