    "Apple pie and lime flavors are backed by vibrant spice in this linear, intense and succulent white. The acidity leaves a tangy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2018."

    "Bright, light yellow. Higher-pitched on the nose than the Greves, showing calcaire-driven aromas of white peach, citrus peel, anise, hazelnut and spicy vanillin oak. Tight and stony, showing more tension and minerality than the Greves; a different grain entirely. The very dry finish offers good thrust."

    "A cool and distinctly citrus-dominated nose also displays hints of mineral reduction and white-fleshed fruit scents. There is excellent tension and precision to the attractively textured and equally mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in a racy, energetic and bone dry finish where a saline component emerges. This linear effort is on the austere side but avoids being overly strict."
