From Vinous (International Wine Cellar)
2014 Xarmant Arabako Txakolina
Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Jan 2016
($18.00) Bright yellow. Aromas of ripe citrus fruits and melon, with mineral and floral notes adding complexity. Silky and focused on the palate, displaying good depth and cut to its juicy Meyer lemon and green apple flavors. Finishes clean and nervy, with repeating floral character and mineral-tinged persistence.
2012 Arabako Txakolina Xarmant Txakoli
International Wine Cellar, #170, Sept/Oct 2013 - Josh Raynolds
($17) Light yellow. Melon and lemon curd on the nose. Silky honeydew and citrus fruit flavors are given a refreshingly bitter edge by quinine and pear skin qualities. The dry, focused finish features a dusty mineral nuance and very good persistence.
2011 Arabako Txakolina Xarmant Txakolina
International Wine Cellar, #164, Sept./Oct. 2012 - Josh Raynolds
($17) Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas and flavors of lime pith, lemongrass, white flowers and chalky minerals. Racy and precise, with impressive power and cut on a finish that features zesty mineral and ginger nuances.
