This is a nonvintage wine based around the 2010 vintage (R stands for Récolte or harvest). Now showing signs of maturity, with hints of toast, it is a rich, full-in-the-mouth wine layered with swathes of citrus and apple fruit flavors balanced with a tight, mineral texture. This dry wine is ready to drink.
