The nose is very pleasant, white flowers dominate, with melon and grapefruit in the background. Far more citrus leads on the palate, white grapefruit and lemon, honeydew showing on the mid-palate, all with great minerality and excellent balance. The region’s limestone and flint both show well. Drink with scallops. Highly Recommended. DH
