The expressive nose gives a fresh fruit made of wild strawberries, red and black currants with herbal notes. Everything is surrounded by graphite and stony notes, soft spices coming from the barrels and touches of smoky brown tobacco. The mouth provides a good volume from the beginning, with a lot of roundness and a great balance between structure and texture.
A brilliant and pure pale gold yellow introduces an expressive but elegant nose of sheer chardonnay personality: ripe apples, white flowers, citrus like lemons and fine tangerines enhanced by touches of butter, honey, hazelnuts and fine spices coming from the most elegant French oak aging.
Fresh and complex, such as the nose, the palate shows a juicy body and a lot of precision. The balance is all about structure and overwhelming texture with a crucial acidity in between that seems to give wings to the natural concentration. The rich, long and vibrant finish is made of white fruits such as pears and apples with dried fruits and a mineral, aniseed touch, well completed by subtle fine spices.
