Review

Light yellow. Ripe, honeyed apple and pear aromas, with a distinct mineral tone. Concentrated and focused, with iodine-accented pear and pit fruit flavors, gentle acidity and a note of toasted brioche. Spice notes build on the finish, which shows very good thrust and length. This seems the most fruit-driven of this set.
