Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 95CELLAR SELECTIONStill very young, this holds great potential. Rich, full-bodied and densely structured, it is a wine first, sparkling second. Ripe apple and peach flavors partner with a strongly mineral texture. It needs to age more in bottle, so drink from 2016.To the eyeAn elegant and precious golden hue with scintillating reflections of rye straw. A magical effervescence.To the nose The quintessence of elegance and complexity. The first impression is one of mineral notes that evoke sea bream, oysters and caviar. This is followed by the delicate warmth of plum brandy, that leads on to Mediterranean fruits such as candied apricots and dates. The finish is perfumed with acacia honey and evergreen.To the mouth The general impression is one of elegant generosity, a symbiosis between the tang of candied fruits, the crispness of white peaches and the sweetness of honey. A long finish in the mouth. The structure is firm and majestic.
