87 Points

Very pale yellow with a green tinge.  Subtle aromas of citrus peel, gooseberry and tarragon.  Juicy and lively but supple too, offering modest complexity and density but an easygoing subtle sweetness to its brisk white fruit and citrus flavors.  Finishes firm and salty, with decent persistence.  This wine has capitalized on the added richness of its vintage.
