Bright yellow. Fascinating nose offers lime, lichee, exotic Thai spices, lemon grass, vanilla and menthol. Wonderfully sappy and tactile wine with remarkable juiciness for its glyceral texture. The aromatic herbs and spices dust the palate on the back end, leaving the finish exhilaratingly dry. The sun-drenched terroir has dominated the vintage, notes Deiss, who told me he picked here with a high percentage of noble rot. My score is just a starting point for this wine, which is painfully young.
