“A whiff of smoke pervades this version, with the core of gooseberry and lemon curd notes lingering on the tarragon-infused finish.”

Description

This wine has a pale, brilliant and crystalline gold color with golden highlights. An olfactory expression opening onto the notes of white flowers and exotic fruit but also white fruit (vines peaches). Breathing reveals the fruity aromas of peaches, apricots and the final touch has a complex minerality. On the palate, the attack is frank with a suave roundness which is very seductive enveloped in a vivacity which distinguishes this attack. This wine has a very structured equilibrium with a lovely fattiness in the middle of the palate which prolongs itself agreeably with the favours of white peaches, mango and notes of apricot. The aromatic persistent is particularly intense, the mineral notes at the end of the palate impose themselves with a beautiful length.
