On the eye: Dazzling, crystal-clear, citrine yellow gold enlivened by a delicate, shimmering effervescence. On the nose: The fruit emerges as delicate, golden, muted exotic fruits - mango and kiwifruit - and dried fruit - hazelnut, almond and fig. A touch of iodine enhances this wine's flawless nose. The mild spices reflect the wine's depth - white pepper, smoked tea and cocoa. On the palate: A wine with depth but also honed, precise, in harmony. Voluptuous delicacy with meringue notes. Subtle nuances evoke distant lands - mint tea, lime, kumquat and exotic fruits such as pineapple and candied ginger.

Wine EnthusiastThis is styled in a relatively mature, slightly oxidized fashion. It's round and full-bodied, with lots of oily, buttered-nut flavors. But it is not at all tired or tiring; an underpinning of crisp apple keeps it lively and fresh in the mouth. It drinks very well right now, as if it had been cellared for four or five years.

Wine SpectatorAn evocative bubbly, bursting with lime, floral and mineral notes allied to a vibrant, elegant frame. Very smooth, with a chalky texture on the finish and a long aftertaste. Drink now. 1,000 cases imported.
