The colour veers more to pale lemon with hints of green, and the nose is lifted, floral almost sweet, showing white peach and Nashi pears with a slight nettley background. It has classic mineral tones on the palate, again with white peach, grapefruit and zest, showing a beautifully balanced crystalline purity. For me this is an excellent food wine either when it is young and vibrant or when it is older and more complex nearer maturity. My expectation is that it will age well for many years if required. A few older vintages we have tried recently are the '84, '87, ’89, ’93 and ’94 – all are drinking well. The ’88 was looking more advanced.
