Medium lemon-yellow. Initially the nose is rather tight and undemonstrative, you really need at least 30 minutes of ‘breathing’ before things become interesting – then you have a much wider and indeed classic profile – quite lovely and fresh, citrus infused high toned fruit. The palate will not win an award for density, but it is as well textured as it is balanced and shows a very nice burst of concentrated interest on the mid-palate. The finish is reasonably long. Overall it’s a nicely mineral wine, both enjoyable and worthy, if not a class-leading Perrières.
