This had the same notes of white truffles as Baumard's Papillon had in 1996 and 2002. Very complex nose, unlike any other sweet wine. No apples like most other Chenin Blanc. Not as heavy as the sugar knights in Loire, thank God. Refreshing, and fairly light with great acidity to match the sugar. This is very easy to drink. Will not cope with the heaviest desserts, but goes fine with fruit and meringue and less so with caramel or cream I think.
Light, with a green hue. A particularly interesting nose of camomille, linden, some mild herbal element, also exotic fruit, pineapple, dried mango as well as some lanolin. There is some light salinity on the nose and on the palate. Acacia honey on the palate, it has dense texture, but not cloying on the finish, in fact aromas stay on your back palate but the body of the wine has gone, it is like a shadow of the wine that howers around your mouth. Good balancing acidity, but it is rather mild, the wine is absolutely approachable aleady now. (B+)
