2014 ()

yellow colour. Has a mild, curvy pear fruit air, cooked apple and pear skin present, along with nutty aromas. The palate holds elegant gras richness, has a soft and plump apricot flavour, a tender flow. Charming wine that has good definition, fine acidity. There is good juice at the end, small droplets, fine detail and floral notes. From spring 2016. 14°. To 2021  Oct 2015

2013

yellow robe. The bouquet is varied and soft, its inner depth led by apricot, peach, a little aniseed. The palate leads on quince fruit, is stylish; there are petrol notes here, with deft freshness and gras richness in tandem, some lime moments. This is beau, and more ample than the 2014. 14°. 1,600 b. To 2021  Oct 2015
