(13% alcohol, 5 g/l residual sugar, 11 g/l total acidity): Bright straw-green. Piercing aromas of white stone fruits, aromatic herbs, lime, jasmine and tequila. Then rich and pure on the palate, with deep flavors of nectarine, liquid minerals and aromatic herbs. The very long, palate-staining finish features eye-watering acidity but it's buffered by the wine's very deep, ripe fruit flavors. I love the extreme crystalline purity of this beauty, but it will need at least a decade to fully express its underlying potential. Isabelle feels this is the best wine she made in 2010 and I agree. The grapes were harvested on October 16, as with the Hengst, but the wines couldn't be any more different; that's the magic of terroir.
