The nose is fruity, racy and offers a small fullness as well as a fine concentration (in the background). It reveals notes of ripe white fruits, ripe lime, citrus and crushed nectarine associated with small notes of honeysuckle/flowers, grave as well as a hint of eucalyptus, apple, gravels (Graves) and an imperceptible hint of pepper (in the background). The palatz is fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a beautiful fat, straightness, a bit aerial, a beautiful fullness, a small acid frame (in the background), a small tension, juiciness, a very fine unctuosity, a good defintiion as well as a bit aerial. On the palate this wine expresses notes of peach/nectarien, lime and more slightly citrus, apple, pineapple associated with fine touches of eucalyptus, very discreet touches of gravels (Graves) as well as an imperceptible hint of toasted (in the background/give fullness). Good and gourmand persistence. There is a subtle saline hint and of toasted on the persistence.
