A wine with a glowing, coppery - golden yellow colour. Crystal clear and dense, as indicated by tears slowly sliding down the wall of the glass

Intense and refined scents evoke ripe peach, Kiku apple, pomegranate, red-orange, quince compote, ginger, yellow rose, jasmine flower, hay, thyme, roasted hazelnuts, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and butter dough.

The palate feels oily. It pleasantly fills the mouth, balancing it with freshness and mineral salinity. The taste is intense, elegant and long-lasting.

It is a harmonious wine offering long and pleasant pleasures that will only intensify with maturation. Clearly showing a long life ahead of him, and I would be happy to taste it again in 7 years.

It will go well with soft-fried crab on rice paddles and complex plates, which consist of several elements that would balance and refresh the dish. A gourmet wine!
