Tasting The robe is strong golden yellow with green reflections, of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows a brilliant youth. The nose is marked, pleasant, a bit short. We perceive fine scents of dry fruits, citrus fruits, lemon, grapefruit, as well as flowers, rose. The airing enhances these scents and reveals more exotism, mango, banana, papaya, passion fruit and ginger. The nose is a bit austere but shows a noble and sophisticated range of scents. It needs time to assert itself. The onset in the mouth is dense and marrowy. The alcohol support is well-balanced. The wine evolves on a fresh and tight medium, marked by a sparkling note. The aromatic palette is more intense than the nose, dominated by citrus fruits, lemon zest, lemon, grapefruit, flowers, rose, exotic fruits, banana, mango, papaya, starfruit and spices, grated ginger. The bitterness is elegant. The finish has a good length, 8-9 caudalies, as well as a fine bitterness and a persistent liveliness. The balance is first concentrated and then becomes more digestible, almost airy. The quality of this vintage botrytis is splendid and shows a precise fruit. Great wine to be.
