Winery Notes:

The 2020 'L'Après-Midi' is visually compelling with a translucent, silver color accented by a bright, pale golden hue. The bouquet is reminiscent of neroli, expressing vine and orange blossom along with a vibrant oyster shell and granitic minerality heightened by fresh lime, lemon fruit, and gooseberry, with a hint of pine needle and verbena. The flavors are introduced with a touch of freshness and glycerol, carrying elegant white spring flowers-jasmine and white vine rose with a resounding array of fruit, Vosges lemon candy, gooseberry, grapefruit to mandarin, and guava. The finish is balanced, precise, mineral-driven, and elegant, revealing white currant, apricot, acacia honey, and quince paste. The 2020 'L'Après-Midi' will benefit from several years of cellaring to develop further complexity and express the originality of the vintage.

Lime and pear with aniseed undertones. Very aromatic. Medium-to full-bodied and very fresh with brightness and beauty. This is rather special, with only 2% semillon, the rest sauvignon blanc. Drink now.
