The appearance is of buttercup yellow colour with golden reflections. The disk is clear and thick, the robe is light)coloured and fluid with a beautiful clarity.On the nose, the aromas are at first very much present, dominated by yellow fruits such as mirabelle jam combined with aromas of candied fruits. A delicate touch of bergamot completes the aromatic palette. The olfactory quality of this wine is characterised by aromas derived from a beautiful maturity of the grapes.The onset is frak, this wine is dry. An ample structure includes melted sugars and has a tonic and present freshness. I feel a fine aromatic intensity marked by fruits and spices. The fruits are expressed in a register of ripe pear and dried dates while the spices are revealed through the white pepper and caraway. The length is between 4 and 5 caudalies, on a refreshing finish of fresh hazelnuts.
