Prelude of deep minerality. Fine aromas of crispy farmhouse bread crust and hay flowers. Tight and complex. In the taste fully ripe apricot and smoky lemon. A chalky, even oyster-water-like aftertaste focuses and holds the wine on the palate. A great Morillon, which seamlessly follows its Nussberg predecessors. (Thomas Schabl, wine sommelier)
