Tasting notes

Appearance: Pale yellow colour, clear and bright.

First nose:  Nice aromatic intensity on a fine and complex register of agrums.
Second nose: The second nose confirms a fruity aromatic palette, delicate scents of ripe fruit (white peach, citrus) and understones of white flowers (orange flower, basswood).

Palate: Frank and honest attack, a sign of generous maturity.

Mid palate: Crunchy ripe fruit (vinepeach, agrums), supported by an elegant minerality.
End of palate: Rich and persistent  on the expression of optimal maturity. Delicate acidity that focuses the aromas throughout the tasting.
