Reviews

  • "93 points. This wine makes a strong argument for the distinctive character of the region’s fruit: The mineral trajectory of its pale ripe flavor tastes like fruit grown in limestone soil. With all the sophistication of a bottle-fermented sparkler – the pale almond notes and the scent of a crusty baguette – this wine’s white fruit flavors keep juicing up from behind the tongue, whetting the appetite for calamari a la plancha or a seafood terrine.” (Wine & Spirits)
