Advice

Tasting notes
This wine has a slightly chalky bouquet, tight at first, but it soon finds it voice. The limestone soils really come through more on the palate, which displays a superb line of acidity and a vivacious finish with orange zest, grapefruit and white peach notes lingering in the mouth.
