Aromatically speaking this is almost a hypothetical blend of the FrÃ©miets
and Caillerets with its perfumed and moderately high-toned red currant nose

delineated and energetic middle weight flavors display outstanding
precision on the almost pungently mineral-driven, balanced and hugely long

hallmark austerity present, it is somewhat less than I'm used to seeing in
