Drink Can be drunk now, but will age for a further 5+ years
Deep-ish straw-gold colour. Lemon, apple, honey, hay, slightly nutty and even a whiff of petrol - unusual, complex and alluring. Fine and elegant on the palate, with spiced citrus and apple flavours, notes of garrigue herbs, orange peel, just a hint of grape tannin and a wonderfully refreshing backbone of acidity. It really is gloriously fresh, fruity, herby and - yes - "winey". The finish is tangy and mouth-watering and keeps you coming back for more. Furthermore, it really does benefit from a night in the decanter, becoming richer and more complex with plenty of air. Delicious, but will it age? Yes. But whether you want to drink it now, or keep it for a few years, you are onto a winner!

Le Guide de Gault & Millau 2015 - 17.5/20 "Big crush for this vintage 2011; Jean Paul Luc signs certainly one of the best white wines of the South of France. Notes of sweet almonds and verbena infusion in a fleshy mouth. Pure happiness!!!!

Drink Can be drunk now, but will age for a further 5+ years
Light, bright straw-gold colour. A complex nose of cantaloupe melon, asparagus, apple, lime, freshly-cut grass and garrigue herbs - and like its predecessor vintage, with some nutty, honeyed notes. The palate again offers spiced citrus and apple flavours, with notes of garrigue herbs and spice, with just a hint of grape tannin. There's also a touch of saline/savoury minerality, which is offset by ample acidity. Another delicious white, which still has several years of evolution ahead of it.

Le Guide de la Revue du Vin de France 2016 - 16.5/20 "Minna 2012 White is beautiful, with a great expression and buttered flavors, of honey and dried flowers.

Bright, translucent straw/gold colour. A delicate but expressive array of spring flowers, soft citrus, apple, oregano and thyme greets the nose, with subtle hints of lime oil and clove in the background. The palate is equally delicate and complex, offering a really focused, cool, herby, almost minty mouth-feel. It is beautifully rounded, with plenty of fresh apple and citrus-tinged fruit, the merest hint of pepper/spice, perfectly judged acidity and a long, tangy finish. It is unusual for a wine (of any colour) from a relatively hot climate to feel so fresh and vivacious as this, but a clue is given in the alcohol level on the label of just 12% abv - a (welcome) rarity in this age of global warming-enhanced high alcohol levels. In fact, some of the finest wines I have ever had the pleasure of drinking have been relatively low in alcohol - Trévallon being a notable example from this region. And whilst I wouldn't compare this - in terms of weight or complexity - to a white Trévallon (which would retail for well over twice the price, remember) it is both a delight to drink now and could well evolve in a similar manner, over the next 5 to 10 years.
