On first impressions this wine has an attractive golden color. The nose is bursting with flavors of lemon rind, fresh hay, caramelized apple and honey. The palate is rich in flavors of quince, lemon meringue and brioche, with a luscious full texture backed by a well-balanced acidity and lingering aftertaste. The grapes are from a single site on the Dornier property. The soil is made up of red and yellow decomposed granite. We select from the best vines on the site, which lie slightly elevated from the rest of the block, on a steep slope. The yields are naturally low with concentrated fruit, full of flavor.
