Editor note: Nutty nose, hint of partly dried flowers, elegant yellow fruit, hint of oak, herbaceous traces, mineral notes. Clear, polished, firm, tart, juicy fruit on the palate, nutty aromas, chalky moneral notes, persistent, good substance, but not at all heavy, very elegant, lively acidity, good depth, still young, just a hint of oak, delicate tannic grip, very elegant juicy and mineral notes on a very good firm finish. A pleasure to drink.
