The wine shows a beautiful color with golden and green glints.
The nose is characterized by dominant citrus aromas, such as orange and grapefruit.
It also shows notes of pineapple, peach, vanilla and broom flower with a hint of toasted brioche.
The attack is powerful, generous and offers good unctuousness.
A beautiful freshness appears on the mid-palate, accompanied by a suave and dense character, making a remarkably balanced wine.
Finally, the typical vivacity of the Barsac appellation imposes itself on the finish.
