Tasting Notes

An ultra-pure and high-toned nose of mineral-based reduction, spiced pear and acacia blossom gives way to overtly stony and quite finely detailed broad-shouldered flavors that despite their significant size and weight, are crystalline in their transparency. This very much seems to be built on a base of liquid limestone with impeccable balance and flat out stunning persistence. This is a "wow" wine of both volume and finesse that will definitely age as the acid support is very firm, particularly for the vintage, in fact the intensity of the finish is almost painful.
