Wine Description

The 2005 vintage is an elegant wine with good concentration. The nose is both complex and harmonious with a dominance of apricot, orange peel and exotic fruit. On the palate, this wine is very expressive with notes of candied fruit, apricot, melon jam and grilled almonds.

A very "pure" wine with light wood. The originality of this vintage comes from a great freshness and an abundent mineral backbone that balances out the concentration.

    Pale yellow-gold color. Peach and apricot aromas carry through onto the dense palate, where they are joined by suave oak and a finishing element of candied citrus peel. Ripe acidity gives the wine a juicy quality in the middle, as well as a firm edge on the finish that calls for some patience.
