flashy yellow in the robe; has a fruit salad, jam aroma – ripe, and a bit unusual to find pink grapefruit. The palate has an edgy start, showing acidity, and a full-on tangy, assertion. It is in a whirlwind now, but has the ability to settle. The length is OK – it ends freshly. From mid-2009. To 2016. Nov 2008
mild yellow, legs down the glass. Overt oak on the nose, an aroma of pineapple chunks, also white pepper, butter – it is fairly broad. The palate starts with melted butter, followed by dried fruits such as greengage, and correct tightening. Its texture is smooth, without excess laying it on. The cooler tone late on works well, with a good kick on the aftertaste. 2011-13 Jan 2008
very ample bouquet, mixes iodine, white fruits, fennel. Feels as if is gaining weight as it ages, has gone past its drink as an aperitif stage. Well structured attack, has tangy, pear flavour and a near-tannic grip on the finish. Correct wine, is a little dry and closing down as it ends now, so more on offer from late 2007, I suggest. 2013-14 Nov 2006 Previously October 2006 *(*) stone fruit such as greengage aroma with some herbs. Solid, perhaps a bit tough palate, there is alcohol lurking here, and is a bit detached at the end, where there is heat. Definitely needs food to absorb its power.
the bouquet shows a pretty peach and apricot fruit aroma with some licorice-fennel, has a quiet warmth. The is well structured, has a good, fresh flavour, dances along. Is a little dry-toned, but has plenty going for it. Good length. 2016-17 Nov 2006
