Drink Good now, but will age 5 to 8 years

Limpid pale gold, with orange glints. What a lovely nose - cut limes and pink grapefruit, with hints of spiced apple, fresh root ginger, orange blossom and classic Loir(e) Chenin wet stone minerality. Along with the citrus notes, there's an enticing whiff of something sweeter, more honeyed, which carries through on the palate and lends a touch of richness to what is otherwise an essentially dry wine - "tendre sec", if you like, with perhaps just a gram or two of residual sugar. It really is an attractive and very more-ish style of wine, chock full of soft citrus and dessert apple flavours, and a tantalising hint of herby/saline savouriness, but with that hint of richness being more than offset by laser-like acidity and earthy minerality. It really is a quite beautifully-crafted wine, and utterly delicious to drink now, though I suspect it will age and evolve for another 5 to 10 years or more.
