The colour is lemon yellow with light green reflections, of average intensity. The wine shows youth. The nose is marked and pleasant, with a deep intensity. Racy, we perceive a dominant of rich aromas, candied, fruity, citrus fruits, lemon, orange, spices and ginger. Airing enhances the previously perceived aromas, it strengthens the citrus fruits and reveals a delicate and flinty mineral trace. The nose plays on a register characterising this 'fresher" vintage. However, the range of scents maintains a nice overall precision. The onset in the mouth is dense, fleshy and compact. The alcohol support is balanced. The wine evolves in a clean and lively medium, pithy and marked by a sparkling note. The range of aromas is similar to that of the nose, a fruity dominance, with citrus fruits, lemon, orange, spices, ginger, a light floral note along with this underlying complex mineral touch. We perceive also a hint of bitterness. The finish has a good length, lively with a lingering bitterness. The balance of this wine is focused on freshness. The terroir expresses a remarkable density.
