It comes out the most potently mineral and racy, with varying levels of sweetness, usually in the demi-sec range. True to form in 2017, Silex Noir finished with 13.7 grams RS and 5.4 grams acidity. (bowlerwine.com)
Wine Spectator WS94
A silky, mineral-driven version, featuring wet stone and sel gris notes that stand firm from start to finish, underscoring lemon zest, green plum and quince flavors. A bit taut now, but shows incredible precision, depth and complexity, which should all shine through after a few more years of aging. Best from 2021 through 2031. 200 cases imported.
