(these grapes were picked at the same time as the Forêt): Bright lemon-yellow. Cool and minty on the reticent nose. Then juicy on the palate and a bit more open-knit than the Forêt, but with an uncompromising dryness to the grapefruit and menthol flavors. This is more concentrated and enveloping if still a bit youthfully warm. These vines are about 30 years old, compared to 20 to 25 for the Forêt. No shortage of ripeness here.
