($61-$90) Incredible nose combines orange zest, pear, and stony, flinty minerality. Enters the mouth with firmness and then expands dramatically toward the back, displaying an extraordinary airiness of texture allied to outstanding energy and grip. The lemon curd and stone flavors build inexorably on the aftertaste, and yet the dominant impression left by the finish is of compelling lightness and lift. Think the Barsac equivalent of a great Meursault Perrieres.
