Bright, pale yellow. Compelling high-pitched aromas of grapefruit and liquid minerals. Conveys a virtually solid impression of extract in the mouth, with its sexy sweetness more than buffered by saline crushed-rock minerality, lemon, grapefruit, white flowers, vanilla, white pepper and soft spices. With its extraordinarily fine-grained texture, complex soil tones and palate-staining finish, this essence of minerality is one of my early candidates for wine of the vintage in 2014. Although it should enjoy a long and glorious evolution in bottle, it's not particularly austere today.
