Attractive aromas of peach, dried pineapple and shortbread. Lemon curd, too. It’s full-bodied with tangy acidity and a flinty finish. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast, December 2021

This barrel-fermented white offers moderate acidity and well-integrated oak, with rich, layered flavors of apple pie, peach and melon. Lush in style, the fullbodied palate lingers on baking spice notes. —VIRGINIE BOONE
