Ripeness of lemon peel and possibly white stone fruits, along with a note of honey, nuts and vanilla. Rich, creamy and mouthfilling and broad. Long and becoming more delicate towards the finish. Rounded and relatively soft though not lacking freshness. (JH)
The restrained but fantastically complex aromas are ripe, pure and elegant, indeed one can simply smell this and be knocked out. Like the Perrières, there are copious amounts of dry extract, which imparts a wonderfully seductive character to the textured and classy broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent mid-palate fat on the opulent, refined, mouth coating and palate staining finish that is mildly austere as well as hugely long. This will require plenty of patience from those fortunate enough to acquire a few bottles but the good news is that it will live for years to come.
