Editor note: Delicately nutty, herbal and still a hint of yeasty aroma with light yellow fruity and hints of floral notes as well as mineral hints in the background. Firmly knitted, tangy fruit, nutty and again also very slightly yeasty aromas, very fine, lively acidity, some grip of crumbly tannin, persistent and quite dense on the palate, good depth, clear, light minerality, very delicate wood tones, certain melting, has energy, still rather undeveloped, very good, rather firm finish

Editor note: Fairly deep nose, elegant vegeta notes with a light hint of green asparagus, light yellow fruit aromas, floral traces, light mineral notes. Fresh, elegant, juicy fruit on the palate, delicate yeasty andn utty notes, light herbaceous and floral notes, good persistence, some depth, chalky traces in the background, still young, quite firmly structured, but also an elegant style, mineral and jutty notes on a very good, juicy finish. Elegant understatement.
