Written Notes

The wine displays a high intensity of botrytized flavors such as heather honey and candied orange peel, with the acidity perfectly complementing the sweet fruit.

  Peach, apples, lemons, some citrus, fruit forward nose, detailed and elegant.
Fresh acidity, fruit forward, detailed, nuanced, fruit forward and bright, long finish. Beautiful. Bit lighter for fargues, yet superbly balanced and pure.A favourite this vintage.

  • 97p

Intense golden colour. Very refined and elegant nose with aroma reminiscent of candied orange peel, ripe peaches, dried apricots, tropical fruit e.g. pineapple and mango, white blossoms and white nougat in the background. On the palate rich sweetness and refined acidity, excellent depth and length with a fruit quoting the nose.
