This bottle had a nice presentation and the color of the wine was lovely. It is indeed very good.
The wine showed a delicate and complex nose with the same flavors on the palate: less ripe yellow melon / pear, lime / lemon, a little green melon, with a floral aspect, crisp acid, and a lot of slightly rough minerality, None of my bottle survived to be tasted the next day. I wouldn’t say this is a totally huge Thumbs Up, but it is a very nice wine for the money.
