Vintage : 2000
How to marry minerality and the sweetness of a candied fruit, this is it ! Is is very subtle and allowed by a long change step by step in the mouth. It is quite difficult to describe with words… really an experience to sip.

What do experts think about this wine?
Pungent yeast, chalk and wet rocks in the mineral dominant nose along with floral dewdrops. Big rich apple flavors with succulence, vibrant citric acidity and lots of minerality. Bold and glossy with nervy energy
