Editor note: Rather firm, still slightly yeasty and almost a little sulphurous, with a scent of partly candied yellow fruits, with a little yellow spice, floral and planty notes and mineral tones in the background. Ripe, juicy, sweetish fruit with hints of candy, some yeast and a hint of caramel, moderate acidity, some grip, certain warmth and power, lasting, mineral, also on the palate still with smoky-sulfurous nuances, very good, firm, quite sweet finish with candied and preserved fruit, but also grip and spice
