White and yellow orchard fruit mainly on the fairly discrete nose at the start. On the palate, the acidity seems backwards at first and even a little flat almost, the wine needs air and time in the glass and the result is astonishing as it develops to a fine, classy, elegant, fresh and very pure wine with just enough tension to bring everything together, surprising length and finish as well, excellent. 92-93

Nez de fruits blancs et jaunes surtout. Au départ , l’acidité est en retrait, le vin a besoin d’air car le palais et les arômes se développent magnifiquement pour révéler un vin élégant, fin, très pur, avec finalement une acidité bien dosée, un vin d’une longueur surprenante, quelle classe! 92-93
