Winemaker notes

The robe is lemon yellow with light reflections of medium intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth.

The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. We perceive a dominant of floral (rose) and spicy scents as well as candied ginger. The airing enhances the previous scents and reveals an exotic personality : banana, passion fruit, papaya, mango and Sichuan pepper. The superb quality of the raw material expresses itself with a lot of distinction and brightness. The controlled exposure to sunlight subjugates the range of scents. The onset in the mouth is dense, powerful and mellow. It shows a perfect silky touch and the alcohol support is powerful. The wine evolves on a medium with a frank liveliness, marked by a sparkling note. We find the same aromas as on the nose, this time dominated by exoticism : white peach, banana, passion fruit, mango, flowers (rose), spices (Sichuan pepper) and candied ginger. We perceive a hint of bitterness. The finish has a long length, 11-12 caudalies, and a strict liveliness and a fine and persistent bitterness. Ample and tasty, the structure of this wine is splendid. Charming and voluptuous, it shows a very high level of distinction and brightness. A great wine is born!
