Golden. On the edge of oxidation. Quite intense, orange rind. Lemon. Some minty edges. Very good but on the turn. Drink up.

Really lush yellow fruit. Sweet and really intense. Lemon curd, honey, a hint of mint. Superb mouthfeel and really long. There’s scruff here but it’s very fine and part of a seamless whole.

Lovely soft open honey on the nose. Broad knit and lush with good definition.

A lush and sexy nose spiked with honey and a bristling acidity. On the midpalate powerful and intense. Very full mouthfeel with notes of honey, lemon (almost sherbert), acacia. Still tightly wound and intense with sweetness and hints of secondary notes. Long and very Batard. Excellent

Great start to dinner. Minerality, acidity and fruit balanced with no signs of over oak...

Nez de pierre à fusils et fleur lourde mais aussi un peu d évolution
Bouche très ample peut être trop au début plus dense en cœur de bouche et finale un peu fatigué
Mauvais achat je pense

Very bright and lifted nose. A touch of licorice? Vital and zesty. Very powerful palate. Gorgeous intense fruit with citrus and surging acidity. A bit monolithic at the moment. Loads of stuffing.

Lovely expansive nose of honey, yellow flowers. On the palate gorgeous fruit- peaches, a hint of marzipan and lovely minerality. Soft yet sexy. Focused and right here now.
