Melay, yeasty, waxy nose of apple and pear. Rounded, full and delicisou - apple pastry flavours, some grip on the palate as well. Tangy acidity. Young but delifvers pleasure. 17.5/20
From a quite simply brilliant Loire producer, this is a wine still in its adolescence, but its quality shines through nonetheless. Rounded and already showing admirable depth, it possesses fine, piercing minerality from head to tail. Those mineral lines are bolstered by notes of apple and star fruit - this wine will reward patience.
