2016 Marsanne Intrépide
Drink this with fried tofu with mirin and miso. Serve at a mild room temperature.
The appearance is bronze. There are intriguing aromas of ginger spice, rockmelon, bees wax and fresh green pear. The palate shows chalky tannin from the skin contact. Upfront notes of lime pith are followed by fresh pine needle, blood orange and almond meal. The finish is long, puckering and compelling.
