The focus of the wine is perfectly split between its lush core of fruit and its subtle nuttiness and mineral tone. The wine’s heavenly scents are reminiscent of the first blooms of spring with generous notes of lemon peel and white truffle. Poached pear and lemon curd flavors are explosively fresh while the pure, seductive nature of the wine comes through brilliantly in a finish of minerals and apple spice. This is a wine to be treasured as it will evolve beautifully over the next 10 years. In fact, decant this bottle alongside a dish of scallops and pistachio nuts sautéed in a light cream sauce and you’ll have a bit of heaven on earth for the evening.
