Antique golden. A bit hidden at first. Then a deep and evocative fragrance, a nose of impact, adornment and torque. Quite a ravishing display of orchard fruit and mineral saturation; beurre blanc with lemon zest, coriander, beeswax, mimosa blossom, acacia honey. Muscular yet curvaceous, anvil dense without undue weight, a fruit gestalt of spiced pear, honeyed peach, apricot pastry. A fine lattice of citric acidity and stone minerality gives this ornamented fruit its superior animation and lift. Baroque Corton Charlemagne in western pleasure lope. Now – 2015+ (but for fans of white burgundy in its bronzed splendor this can and will make old bones > 30 years).
