The perfect accompaniment with fresh fish, seafood and caviar.
Bright pale yellow with glimmers of green. Fine, dynamic bead.
Initial floral notes of linden, honeysuckle and acacia with citrus nuances evocative of bergamot and mandarin orange zest along with a dash of anise and green tomato. Following are notes of just-ripe stone fruits, white peach, nectarine and Mirabelle plums.
The bouquet is completed by gentle scents of pastry, brioche, frangipane, almonds and vanilla with a slight hint of white pepper. This vintage is vivacious and lively. The underlying acidity orients the linear, focused palate; the tautness is enveloped and channelled by the texture of succulent notes of white fruits which envelop and channel the freshness toward a vibrant, mouth-watering finish with a lingering note of citrus fruit.
Although temperatures were in line with 30-year averages, 2008 can still be considered a cooler year in comparison to the last decade, similar to 2004 and 1998. Winter was mild and spring mostly rainy and grey. Summer was particularly cool but, fortunately, dry as well. September was the key month for the 2008 vintage: the initial rains were swept away by a north-westerly wind that favoured proper ripening, healthy grapes and a smooth harvest, which was officially open from September 12th to 27th. At 9°8, the potential alcohol level fell within the averages for the decade and it was the high acid balance (8.6 g H2SO4l total acidity per 2.98 pH) that was the salient characteristic of this vintage, which was preceded by several "warm" vintages. Such acidity in a mature vintage had not been encountered since 1995 and 1996. In another significant occurrence, all three varietals were in perfect health.
