The robe is lemon yellow with green reflections, of good intensity. The disc is shiny, limpid and transparent. The wine presents youth.
The nose is frank, pleasant, of good intensity. We perceive a dominant scent of citrus fruits, yellow lemon and white flowers. Aeration amplifies these smells and reveals grilled sesame, dried fruits, pistachio and a fine vegetal register. The beautiful maturity of the grape reflects a racy profile, just, still a little restrained. It is a great success.
The attack on the palate is moderately ample, the alcohol support full-bodied. We evolve on an incisive medium, marked by pearling. We find the range of aromas of the nose, focused on citrus fruits, lemon, white flowers, grilled sesame, dried fruits, pistachio and fine vegetal. We feel a hint of firm bitterness. The finish presents a good length, 6-7 caudalies, as well as a frank vivacity and a persistent bitterness. Lively, nervous, the balance tends towards freshness without too much harshness.
The typical range of aromas perfectly reflects this beautiful grape variety.
