Served alongside some very cheesy gougeres, this showed a very rich, apple and citrus dominated palate. The overall depth of flavor was impressive. It partnered well with the food, and maintained a consistent flavor profile through the hour+ that we took to drain the bottle. My one criticism was that when it warmed up the wine was overly sweet.
Open nose of baked apple, peach and lemon with vanilla, cumin seed, almonds, nutty toast and florality. Dry and medium bodied palate with crispy citrusy acidity and rather fine creamy smooth moussé. Appley baked fruit, citrusy brightness, slight bitterness and refined autolysis notes. Some nuts and liquorice. Round aftertaste. Dosage evident, but balanced. Pretty elegant stuff. I like this!
