($13) Straw-gold. Yellow plum and apple scents are deepened by hints of dried herbs and flowers. Gentle apple and peach flavors show a supple texture, with a fine dusting of talc-y minerals giving energy. Brighter citrus notes define the finish, which offers good persistence.
($15) Pale straw. Intense citrus, apple and pear aromas are lifted by nervy suggestions of lemon rind and anise. Crisp and linear, with impressively concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors displaying good cut and depth. There's real power here. (Kysela Pere et Fils, Winchester, VA)
