Captivating, multidimensional, age worthy white wine at a steal of a price? Why, yes, please! Boasting flavors and aromas of bergamot, lime, honey and beeswax, quince, stone fruits, light sweet spice notes and suggestions of something rocky-stoney in back, there’s lots of interest to this engaging wine. The sweet-tart balance is a beautiful, like a taste of ripe pineapple, making it easily gulpable in the way of certain off dry German Rieslings, although caution is advised: it isn’t nearly as gentle on you if you do. If you can resist its youthful appeal, the Les Tuffeaux does seem as though it is destined to go from strength to strength and will likely show a similarly captivating adult personality down the road; I know I’ll certainly be waiting to see it.
