James Suckling Review
The clarity of chalk and white almond is striking. Gentle perfume with some light cherry fruits, peach, grapefruit and lemon citrus. The palate has a piercing burst of lemon and grapefruit flavor on the front and builds into gently biscuity and more savory flavors through the middle. Holds on to bright zesty acidity into the finish. Smooth, resolved and balanced. Really detailed. Drink now to 2020+.
The golden and deep yellow hue sparkles with luminous highlights as the bubbles rise. The bouquet is intense and precise, and notes of spring flowers, Williams pear, and citrus peel gradually emerge. Aeration produces a crescendo of aromas consisting of dried fruits (lightly grilled hazelnuts), a warm-stone character, smoky flavors, and cocoa beans.
In the mouth, the wine is impressive, the palate is a rich array of flavors, youthful energy, and dynamism, with a wonderful blend and juxtaposition of acids, salinity, stones, fruit, and a creamy texture. Wave after wave of sensations produce an impression of sudden acceleration, followed by serenity and elation. The mineral freshness returns with renewed intensity, before receding, and finally merging into an elegant velvety texture. This is followed by hints of bitterness and slight astringency, which introduce an element of gastronomy and vinosity-nonetheless, elegance and purity remain the predominant characteristics.
