The nose is fruity and offers intensity, richness as well as a slight gourmandise. It reveals notes of compoted peach and vanilla combined with slight touches of quenette / passion fruits, ripe zests of lemon as well as a very discreet hint of beeswax / almond and white flowers / honeysuckle. The palate is fruity, mineral, juicy, fresh, well-balanced and offers a good definition, gourmandise, a good structure, suavity, fat, power, a small concentration, a nice fresh frame, a slight acidity (in the background), a small unctuosity as well as a slight tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / compoted peach, fleshy / compoted pear and slight notes of passion fruits, honeysuckle associated with touches of apple, citrus (lemon, mandarine) as well as slight hints of wood and almond. There is a hint of vanilla on the aftertaste.
