"(tasted from tank, where it was ready for bottling; these vines were picked on August 31): Pale lemon-yellow color. Subtle yeasty complexity to the aromas of pineapple, lemon, minerals and baked bread. In a very ripe, rich, pliant style but with lemon drop and mineral flavors conveying an impression of freshness (the pH here is 3.3, which Claude de Nicolay described as correct). This plush, persistent wine, which is quite low in SO2, should give early pleasure."
