Mature nose, partly dried honeydew melon, caramel, prominent spicy oak. Full-bodied, high in alcohol, more carmel and dried honeydew melon on the palate, prominent spicy oak, hint of cocoa, mienral traces, slightly astringent tannins, persistent, medium depth, elegant spicy notes, very creamy, quite a firm strucutre, good finish. No longer as harmonious as it was when it was young, should be drunk soon.

Very clear, fruity nose with apples, honeydew melon, mineral notes with elegant spicy oak. Crystal clear, almost brilliant fruit, filigree acidity, spicy mineral notes, oak very much in the background, full-bodied and high in alcohol, nevertheless very well balanced, even has finess, refreshing and very persistent on the palate, has depth and length. Outstanding wine.
