Moderate yellow-gold; lovely medium aromatic nose, toasty, showing a little age with light hazelnut mixed with dried wheat and subtle fading fruit of apricot and mashed-up apples! Let it warm up to fully express. Fine mouth, moderate+ intensity, foamy fine bubbles, elegant but still good power. Enjoyed most after 20-30 minutes in glass, warmed up and little effervescence left.
(Disgorged fall of 2013) Distinct yellow colour. Still very mineral driven nose showing seashells, almonds, butter and lemon. Very acidious palate with lots of mineral with a balanced fruity finish. Feels a bit too closed down right now, but will probably open up in a year or two. But with 10-20 years extra cellaring then it will hopefully show some really nice notes.
Started with subtle aromas of orange blossom, apricot and peanut butter but build up to toasted brioche with honey, sunflower seeds and cinnamon. On palate so elegant, youthful and silky smooth with flavours of pistachio nuts, dry apricots, jasmine, sweet orange and wonderful fruity finish but not that long and mid palate missing. This wine is very shy and in order to appreciate to fullest needs attention to detail and patience for 1-2 hours after it's been open.
