A pretty, pale gold with an attractive, expressive nose suggestive of sweet melon, citrus, and butter but with sappy and floral hints as well, eventually even developing some delicate but more exotic notes such as coconut. A little reserved at first, but, once open, achieves a remarkable balance between evolving, rich, almost unctuous, buttery characteristics and a taut acidity. A marvel of poise. A real overachiever for this appellation. Delicious now, but likely to improve.
Food pairing: crab, oysters, mussels, seafood pasta, chicken or veal with wild mushroom cream sauce
