Tasting :

"Along with pungent hints of green tea and corn shoots, it offers Chablis-like intimations of salted chicken stock and crushed stone on a substantial, polished palate. Not that luscious fruit is ignored, in this instance peach and pineapple. Here, the screwcapped bottle accentuated the sense of fresh fruit while the bottle under cork seemed to offer some additional nuances but at the price of finishing clarity." -DS Wine Advocate
