This producer focuses on Rhône Valley varietals, and this wine continues the theme. Its apricot and very fine mineral texture are impressive and rich. Touched by spice from wood aging, the wine is generous, with the potential of a creamy, smooth texture as it ages. For now, it is fruity and rich. Drink from 2018.
