2017 vaalea - 91 pts from Vinous
Light, bright yellow. Vibrant aromas of ripe orchard and pit fruits are complemented by chalky mineral and floral nuances. Juicy and concentrated but lively on the palate, offering sappy pear and nectarine flavors that show very good clarity. The pit fruit and floral notes repeat strongly on the energetic finish, which hang on with very good tenacity.
