2006 Huguet de Can Feixes Blanco Seleccio Penedes

($13) Green-gold. Mineral-accented lime, quince and white peach aromas display a refreshing dusty quality. Crisp, sharply focused and wonderfully pure, with vivid citrus and orchard fruit flavors braced by energetic minerality. Reminds me of a top-notch Muscadet on the impressively long, spicy finish. I love this style.

2004 Huguet de Can Feixes Chardonnay Penedes

($36) Yellow-gold. Buttery pear and apple on the nose, with a brisk lemon zest quality adding energy. Plump and juicy but also brisk, showing a pleasant blend of ripeness and nerve. The lingering finish features a crisp citrus note.
