TASTING NOTE: There is a savory touch of salt and herb amidst the fruity mirabelle plum notes on the nose. The palate shows a lovely background of autolytic richness, akin to sponge and rye bread and also has a piquant salty accent that entices all the way to the lemony bright finish. The mousse is fine and elegant, the finish is long and dry. Score - 92 (Anne Krebiehl, MW, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 1, 2017) Price $ 27.95
