The medley of the two clones plays wonderfully together, the RobertYoung showing apple tart and chai-spice while the Musqué is morestone fruited with white peach and apricot. Partial malolactic giveslovely texture in the mid-palate while the chalky salinity providesplenty of freshness that points to a long aging curve for this wine.
Hints of rhubarb, rose petal and star anise add complexity as the wine opens up. Dark red fruit, forest floor and holiday spice enhance the freshness and verve on the palate. A remarkable representation of vintage and variety, we are thrilled with its drinkability today and future age-worthiness.
