Rich, complex, wonderuflly textured, this out of the way wine is not only very interesting but well made and delicious. Citrus and spice make up the palate, with a gorgeous mouth feel.

This is a very interesting wine - fragrant and spicy with citrus, mineral, and earth. Medium-crisp with a slightly oily texture. Kind of like a spicy Chablis.

The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean.
