Tasting Notes

Pale, bright straw-yellow. Tangy aromas of lemon zest and orange peel, along with a crushed-stone element. Sappy, dense and quite dry, with soft citrus and mineral flavors dominating the palate. Finishes very long and a bit tannic, in need of time in bottle for its components to harmonize. This 2012 was the last to finish its malolactic fermentation and Fontaine told me it lacked personality during elevage.
