The nose is fresh, fruity and offers minerality and a good definition. It reveals notes of yellow apple, ripe Mirabelle plum and small notes of quince associated with discreet hints of flowers as well as fine hints of brioche and bee wax. The mouth is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a beautiful definition, a fine acidulous frame as well as freshness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/ripe Mirabelle, quince and small notes of fresh pink lychee as well as touches of crushed yellow apple as well as fine hints of brioche/butter. Good length.
