A pretty pale yellow-green. Floral notes of broom and orange blossom on the nose followed by spicy touches of cardamom and white pepper and finishing on more exotic notes of lemon, pineapple, pink grapefruit and green fig. In the mouth it is fresh, clean and pure, opening with an explosion of white fruit and citrus, taking in preserved lemon, orange, mandarin, peach, watermelon, and Roussillon apricot. These are completed on the finish with mimosa blossom, fennel, aniseed and a hint of musk with superb minerality and the bitter-sweetness of almond. The complexity of this wine offers us magnificent typicity when young, whilst ensuring that it can be cellared to great effect .
