The robe is golden yellow with light reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows a nice youth.The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. We perceive a dominant of citrus fruits (lemon), white flowers and a light smoky, empyreumatic touch. The airing enhances the previous scents and reveals notes of delicate vegetal, spices (ginger). The nose reflects the perfect state of health of the grapes, still a bit restrained. It requires time to assert itself. The onset in the mouth is ample, gentle. The alcoholic base is balanced. The wine evolves on a medium with a sharp vivacity, marked by a sparkling note. We find the same aromas as on the nose, still focused on citrus fruits (citron zest, lemon), white flowers, delicate vegetal, spices (ginger) and this underlying but noble smoky touch. We perceive a hint of mineral bitterness. The finish has a good length, a frank vivacity and a persistent bitterness. Admirable delicious balance for a wine that is usually dry. It does not lose its freshness, remarkably maintained by the firm bitterness. The range of flavours is splendid!
