The nose is aromatic, gourmand, slightly powerful and offers a slight richness as well as a beautiful definition. It reveals notes of pear and slight touches of peach, quince associated with a subtle hint of mirabelle as well as discreet hints of minerality and very discreet hints of oak (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit aerial and offers gourmandise, a slight suavity, a beautiful acid frame as well as a beautiful definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed peach, lemon and slight touches of pear associated with discreet hints of exotic fruits, toasted oak as well as subtle touches of flowers, vanilla, zests (in the background) and very discreet hints of almond / hazelnuts hints on the finish.
