Rene Geoffroy Volupte 2007
On the eye: Pale yellow.
On the nose: Racy, mineral-accented aromas of citrus and orchard fruits, plus a suave touch of toasty lees.
On the palate: Bitter citrus pith and pear skin flavors give way to softer pit fruits in the mid-palate, with chalky minerality adding spine and cut. Packs a serious punch but comes off as lithe and focused. Finishes with excellent clarity and stony persistence, leaving a dusty mineral note behind.
