Fullish color. Understated on entry, even a bit furtive, she unfolds masterly over two days, a gauzy revelation of wild strawberry, white rose, silvery herbs and toasted brioche. Sweetly maturing fruit yet intriguingly savory at the end, her cucumber-saline finish both cooling and meticulous for such a drenched vintage. Fine plus ultra, the road ahead of her opening up, stretching endlessly. Now – 2020.
