Bright and bracing, with the austerity of an ultracool climate, this opens with fresh, delicate aromas of lemon, apple, honey and florals, underpinned by toasty brioche nuances. The palate is pity and slippery, with vibrant lemony acidic notes and fine bubbles and the rounder, yeast-derived characters. balanced, dry and elegant, this should be terrifically food-friendly.

The merest touch of nettle merges into a supreme lemon freshness on the nose. The palate rounds everything out with a subtle yeasty creaminess that boosts the pure lemon flavor. It never seems overly opulent or tart, holding delicious tension throughout.

“The crisp nose conjures up shades of green: meadow and fresh apple peel, fresh foliage and lime, but also has some honey and oatmeal. The palate remains crisp but has a toned lithe note of pure lemon that sings. This is taut, shows backbone and rounds itself out wonderfully on the palate, finishing with harmonious note of apple and shortbread.” – A.K.
