This is a dry white. The nose soars from the glass—wildflowers from the Mediterranean basin, if you ask me—with incredible finesse. A nymphette with class? On the palate: round, shapely, a slight bitterness like bay leaf, a salinity from the nearby sea, and great freshness. The flavors penetrate—unusual in white wines. Penetrate with finesse. Not a bad bumper sticker.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
