Golden color with an amazing glint of green. The nose is complex and elegant. Initial toasty flavor, like toasted hazelnuts – then a suggestion of brioche and honey. On the palate, the attack is extraordinary, clean, one could even say well structured. Compact and solid on the palate. Fatty character and acidity seem perfectly balanced. Long finish, retaining freshness and even a subtle firmness, redolent of dried fruit. Brilliance, purity. Pedigree and distinction. A sense of elegance and balance predominate.
Has oodles of Champagne complexity in a creamy, smooth package. Rich, toasty, creamy and elegant, with delicious nutty flavors that linger on the finish. Enormously concentrated; shows the full benefit of long-term aging on the yeast.
