Its aromatics of citrus, Asian pear, honeydew melon and apple are followed by hints of slate and sea salt that invite you to delve into this wine. The natural balance, complexity and elegance of fruit can be attributed to the beauty in the Dijon Clones 76 and 96 and are accompanied with the sandy soils from the vineyard. The maritime influence highlights the lively crisp acidity and purity of fruit. The smooth rich texture elevates the mid-palate and heightens your senses. Lees stirring transcends this wine into a greater dimension. Neutral oak aging and no malolactic fermentation gives a complex round mouth feel that leads you directly into a long creamy yet vibrant finish.
