The nose is aromatic and offers a slight freshness. It reveals notes of lemon zests and slight notes of white rose and peach associated with a subtle hint of fresh citrus, hints of spices as well as a discreet hint of racy minerality. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, aromatic and offers a beautiful freshness, concentration, suavity, a slight gourmandise as well as a beautiful aromatic intensity and expression. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of passion fruit, quenette and ripe peach associated with a subtle hint of melon, ripe lemon as well as a hint of racy minerality/flint and flowers. Good length.
