wein.plus rating: Very good (88 WP)
Last reviewed: 22 October, 2019
Editor note: Fairly cool nose, prominent vegetal notes, reminiscent of artichokes, restrained yellow fruit aromas, earthy and minteral notes, light nutty traces. Ripe, clear, very slightly warm fruit on the palate, sweetish and creamy, very elegant acidity, light tannic grip, vegetal and herbaceous traces, touch of artichoke again, good substance and persistence, prominent mineral notes, very individual style, floral traces, hint of bacon, still young and very slightly reductive, very good finish.
Best to drink: Mid-2020-2024+
