There's silver and white gold bursting with brightness and brilliance. It lifts the light.
White flowers, chantilly cream, heather honey and barley all come through on the nose, underlined by a subtle citrus zing. There's honeydew melon there too. It suggests weight - it fills the nostrils: heady.
Compelling brightness on the palate - it lifts from the very start. Chantilly cream with melons & candied lemons, barley grist and soft, caressing mouthfeel. The length is exceptional. Remarkably complete considering its youth. That brilliance from the colour somehow comes through to the palate - it's bright and moreish. It's also got that wonderful decadence of good white Burgundy while never for a second seeming overweight or flabby. This is structured and precise. Fantastic wine with a good future.
