Domaine Rijckaert – En Crêches 2016, Vieilles Vignes – Saint-Véran

The nose is aromatic and fruity. The wine needs to be decanted. It reveals notes of quince, crunchy brugnon and small notes of apple associated with hints of fresh almond, racy minerality as well as discreet hints of fresh flowers and an imperceptible hint of beeswax. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers good definition, a fine acid frame, a fine juiciness, precision, elegance, gourmandise, a certain complexity as well as a fine tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe Brugnon, crunchy apple and small notes of juicy pear associated with small touches of quince, lemon as well as a discreet hint of crunchy pineapple, beeswax, minerality racy and almond. Good length and good persistence.
