Taut across the palate as well, with a very delicate mousse and saline, mineral finish and some stone-fruit fleshiness.
Wine Spectator(2006 Vintage) A graceful, minerally version, featuring rich notes of smoke, mandarin orange peel and chalk that lead to subtle accents of creme de cassis, toasted almond, espresso and star anise on the fine, creamy mousse. Seamlessly knit, with citrusy acidity leaving a mouthwatering impression on the finish. Drink now through 2031. From France.-A.N.
