The bouquet is gentle, floral and charming, with notes of pink grapefruit skin. This intense wine features lovely scents of sweet spices and ripe exotic fruit.
The taste is superbly managed, with its minerality surpassing the sap-taste of the wine, remarkable due to its great purity and exceptional length. The attack begins with a very ripe rich fruit, after which saline minerality dominates. The palate is all in finesse, elegant and alert, structured by a lovely freshness. Superb depth with a lemony and saline finish.
A changing wine to be kept for a long time in the cellar and/or to be allowed to stand before tasting, comparable to a premier cru.
