A very elegant , fine, intense and aromatic wine. The nose shows notes of candied pearand exotic fruits (especially pineapple), dried fruits, sweet quince and spices (especially tea). The palate shows a beautiful elegance, finesse, complexity and balance. The fruity aromas are well defined. It reveals notes of caramelized apple, pear, sweet citrus, small dried fruits (especially apricots) with in the background notes of fresh tangerine and lemon that brings a pleasant little acidity (brings balance). Beautiful aftertaste. A rich wine that offers a wide range of aromas. Each tasting, it reveals few new flavors.
