Really nice. Lots of aromatics featuring fresh cut fruits, stones and dried flowers/leaves. Palate has both round fruit and crisp mineralic acidity, decent length. Only the golden hue gives away its age. Fabulous match to seared scallops over a green salad and potato gillette.
Drinking quite well at this stage Still has similar characteristics to my prior evaluations. Lemon, touch of creme brulee/custard, baked apple, minerals, and not overly manipulated oak. Quite elegant; crisp. A long velvety finish. Pairs very nicely with butter fried Opah fish, with a lemon, miso and honey sauce.
