Grand Cru vineyards that are next to Salon. It's not Salon but it is 10% of the price and certainly not 10% of the quality. There is precision, finesse and quality none the less. Bruised red & golden apples, bruised pear, dry pineapple, citrus blend with shining tangerines, butterscotch, citrus blossoms, very fine chalkiness & minerals, saline, smoked almonds, brioche, brilliant acidity and a polished, slightly oxidative, fruit mineral blend, that lasts over a full minute.

Räkfrossa och aiolibuffé. Mycket citrus och stenfrukt. Lite/ingen lytiska smaker. Mycket gott!
