Un vin éclatant dans ra robe dorée, qui déploie des arômes élégants et délicats d'amande, de noisette et de chèvrefeuille. La bouche dense et puissante est irriguée de bout en bout par une fine acidité qui lui apporte un équilibré très assuré et beaucoup d'allonge. Le temps sera son allie.

Floral, fresh and energetic nose with lime zest and ripe lemon notes, some toasty undertones. Very refreshing with a lovely concentration and vivid long finish.

Nose is a little subdued, as the wine moves to another level. Palate has a fabulous structure with a steely frame and a long fruity finish.
