Pale golden in hue, the nose offers up rich lemon custard, toasted brioche, apricot and crème brulée, with subtle vanilla bean and marzipan completing the ensemble. Fresh Anjou pear, baked Granny Smith apple and roasted hazelnut flavors are supported by generous texture and kept lively throughout with bright acidity from start to finish. Judicious use of the best new French oak finishes a deftly balanced wine that celebrates the true potential of one of the world’s most popular white wines.
