The nose is fruity, elegant, racy and offers complexity. It reveals notes of lychee, rose / white flowers and small notes of racy minerality associated with fine touches of quenette, zest as well as a very discreet hint of ripe/crunchy apricot and white pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, gourmandise, well-built and offers juiciness, a fine freshness, a fine minerality, a fine acid frame, elegance, finesse as well as precision. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed brugnon, pear and small notes of quenette associated with fine touches of rose, lychee as well as discreet hints of citrus / mandarin marmalade and an imperceptible hint of candied apricot. Good length.
