The nose is aromatic. It reveals notes of beeswax and woody notes associated with hints of ripe lemon, apple as well as a subtle hint of yellow fruits. The palate is fruity, gourmand, suave, nicely unctuous, well-balanced and offers a sligh acid frame as well as a slight juiciness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of quince, kumquat and small touches of ripe peach assoicated with hints of ripe apple, mandarin as well as slight hints of yellow fruits/beeswax. Good length.
