Editor note: Tart nose, yeasty and light nutty notes, prominent vegetal notes, restrained yellow fruit aromas, touch of root vegetables, hint of bacon, herbaceous notes, touch of acacia honey, intense earthy and smoky mineral notes. Ripe, juicy, tart fruit on the palate, nutty and yeasty aromas, very elegant acidity, integrated tannins provide grip, concentrated and persistent, prominent chalky and salty mineral notes, good depth, still young, complex, some bite on a long, tart finish. Excellent wine.
