Wine Review Report :

Wein-Plus rating: Very good (87+ WP)
Last reviewed: 2 November 2016
Editor note: Cool, polished nose, elegant herbaceous and light floral notes, citrus and stone fruit, hint of red berries, fairly prominent mineral notes. Tranquil, delicately sweet fruit on the palate, vegetal, light yeasty and floral aromas, elegant acidity, slightly muted, hint of dark berries, light earthy and mineral notes, fairly persistent, good substance, traces of bread, overall still rather unapproachable, still slightly muted on a very good, sweetish, grippy finish. Needs some time to mature.
Best to drink: Mid-2017-2021+
