Gleaming bright, with a subtle nose with perhaps more minerality than in 2019. Aromas of white flowers, elderberry and aniseed are underscored by salinity. A standard bearer for its appellation, this is a well-balanced, harmonious, and mouth-watering wine, with mango, pineapple and lemon intertwining with aromas of dill and fennel. The finish is characterised by its citrussy salinity. An exemplary vintage that will be just as good as an aperitif as at table, in the company of all types of seafood and cheeses. Note that this grape variety develops very well over time, gaining in stature and complexity. It can therefore be enjoyed in the bloom of its youth or appreciated after several years’ bottle ageing.
