Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) This wine has a bright color pale yellow with green highlights. The first nose, quite discreet, this delicate notes of fruit and white flowers. After swirling, the nose reveals, expressive, complex, rich with an explosion of yellow fruit, peach, apricot, mango, citrus (grapefruit), sweet spices, anise, caramel. The nose is both ripe and fresh reflects the good weather of the late maturation. On the palate, we find that delicate balance between maturity and freshness that gives the wine a beautiful balance: maturity, wealth, power, quickness. The attack is then stretched mouth widens, becomes dense, creamy, oily.

    Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Loads of vanilla and wood, gigantic nose. Lovely soft, harmonious fruit, super mid-palate, very complex, waves of flavour on the finish. Drink 2008-11.
