Simonnet-Febvre Montmains 2010

Simonnet-Febvre Montmains 2010 #1

Straw color with a streak of emerald.  Nervy, precise and ozonic on the nose: citrus zest, lily of the valley, sea spray, chalk dust, spicy lees reduction.  Frothy and buoyant.  Of modest lines on the palate, bracingly formed and well-delineated: crunchy mutsu apple, meyer lemon, kaffir lime.  A lace of understated acidity and clean seashell minerality: this ’10 has already settled into its skin quite nicely.  Wintery, stone cold finish.  A quiet delicacy.  Respectfully rendered Montmains.  Now – 2016.
