Editor note: Translate to English Ganz eigenwilliger, vegetabiler, erdiger und zart öliger Duft mit gelbfruchtigen Anklängen, an Bohnenkraut erinnernden Tönen, etwas Wachs und deutlicher Mineralik. Klare, geschliffene, feinsaftige Frucht im Mund, deutlich vegetabile Aromen, auch Kräuter und erdige bis salzige Mineralik, hochfeine Säure, nachhaltig am Gaumen, gewisser Schmelz und Kraft, gute Tiefe, noch gänzlich unentwickelt, feinherbe Würze, ölige Spuren, recht vielschichtig, wirkt dabei erstaunlich filigran, gute Tiefe, sehr guter Abgang mit viel Mineralik und komplexer Würze. Muss reifen.
