Crisp, lean, fresh with sometimes a hint of funky richness. A local variety that makes crisp, elegant wine. Monfarina in particular has in youth a steely, mountain stream like personality which mellows after a year or two in bottle. The acidity is bracing and fruit very clean. For an interesting alternative to Chablis from one of the lesser known corners of France, Monfarina is a great choice.
