The most decadent, unctuous and layered in the lineup, with to-die-for notes of white currants, toasted nuts, celery seed and licorice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a huge mid-palate and a refreshing, pure, yet blockbuster finish that just won’t quit. If I had to pick a desert island white, this might be it. - Jeb Dunnuck

Lovely, featuring waves of Jonagold apple, mirabelle plum, lemon curd and white peach flavors, all gilded with hints of honeysuckle, verbena and jasmine. Shows terrific range, with superior detail through the finish...   Lovely, featuring waves of Jonagold apple, mirabelle plum, lemon curd and white peach flavors, all gilded with hints of honeysuckle, verbena and jasmine. Shows terrific range, with superior detail through the finish and lingering minerality adding length. Drink now through 2030. From France. — J.M.

Lurid yellow-gold. Penetrating aromas of ripe, mineral-accented citrus and pit fruits are complicated by hints of chalky minerals, saffron and chamomile.

Penetrating aromas of ripe, mineral-accented citrus and pit fruits are complicated by hints of chalky minerals, saffron and chamomile. Juicy, smoky and deeply concentrated but lithe on the palate, offering densely packed peach nectar, pear liqueur, Meyer lemon and buttered toast flavors that show superb drive and focus. The mineral note repeats emphatically on the incisive, smoke-laced finish, which lingers with outstanding persistence. -- Josh Raynolds

Some riper and more exotic, tropical fruits in the pawpaw zone with ripe mangoes and peaches, too. The palate has stony-mineral depth, all swathed in ripe-fruit flesh and flavor. Plenty of peach and papaya. Very focused...   Some riper and more exotic, tropical fruits in the pawpaw zone with ripe mangoes and peaches, too. The palate has stony-mineral depth, all swathed in ripe-fruit flesh and flavor. Plenty of peach and papaya. Very focused finish and some handy restraint to this. From organically grown grapes. Drink in 2020.
