vinous logo"(from vines averaging 40 years of age, located next to the winery; 100% done in cuve): Pale yellow. Lovely lift to the aromas of crunchy citrus fruits and apple, herbs and flowers. Not a particularly fleshy style but juicy and moderately intense, showing attractive spicy cut to its pink grapefruit and lemon flavors complicated by exotic fruits. Less deep than the estate's Saint-Véran, from soil with a stronger clay content.- Stephen Tanzer"
