Eye
pale light gold in colour with slight greenish glints.
Bright, luminous and limpid.

The nose
exploses to reveal fine, fresh notes of elegant white flowers, freshly baked buns, tender vegetal scents…its excessive nature remains however well-behaved and it remains charming and delicate. It is a pretty harmony of maturity, freshness and finesse.

Taste
immediately shows this wines powerful nature together with its richness and elegance. As if it does not wish to be forgotten, the finish goes on and on, dare I say almost forever.
