Editor note: Slightly perfumed floral notes on the nose, vegetal and light yeasty notes, yellow stone fruit, hint of red berries and citrus notes, earthy and mineral traces. Quite dry, elegant juicy fruit on the palate, fairly tranquil, hay, yeasty, wilted flowers and bitter almonds, salty, peppery and light lemony notes, ripe acidity, noticeable earthy and mineral notes in the background, good grip, currently still rather closed, some depth, opens up noticeably with aeration, very good finish.
