A gorgeous, limpid, translucent pale gold colour. As of now (December 2020) it has only been in bottle for a few months, so shows a slight CO2 spritz and takes an hour or two in the decanter to settle down and open up. If you can decant for even longer, all the better. Thereafter, the nose is wonderfully complex, heavy with the scents of herbs, spices and stony minerality, at the same time exhibiting myriad aromas of apple and peach, mint, honeysuckle and fennel, with subtle notes of spring blossom and lime oil peeping through. The palate has a rich, creamy, almost oily texture, which is perfectly offset by juicy peach and apple flavours, a rasp of cut lime, garrigue herb and spice. The heightened, limey acidity and intense core of minerality makes for an explosively refreshing, yet considerably complex wine. Without doubt one of the finest Languedoc whites on the market.
