Abundant aromas of ripe pears and peaches here with wet-stone and flinty nuances. The palate has a very smooth and supple feel with a wealth of poached peaches and pears on offer.
James Suckling: 91 Points
Color : golden yellow.
Nose : mineral with floral honeysuckle and lily notes in youth , Tabasco, wax, honey.
Mouth : very balanced and with great harmony of this wine with a finely spicy finish that evolves into honey with aging.
Depending on the harvest, the wine can be stored for 30 to 60 years, or even 50 to 75 years.
Sommelier's advice : reduction, unique marker of this wine, it is in full expression and reveals an oxidoreductive balance that is wonderfully combined with notes of acacia and toast. The structure is very fine and mineral.
