Spécial Club is a grouping of growers who taste each other's wines and approve them for Club status. This is certainly an impressive wine, seamlessly moving from freshness to richness via a steely texture. It is still impressively young and fruity, a bright, crisp wine that will age for several more years. Drink from 2016.
