"This is also markedly ripe though with a different fruit profile as here it is more white than yellow with its aromas of pear liqueur, acacia, lemon and a hint of tangerine. There is also excellent volume and solid mid-palate concentration to the rich, voluminous and palate coating flavors that possess a sophisticated mouth feel on the balanced and impressively persistent finish where a touch of pain grillé surfaces."

"Bright yellow color. Sexy aromas of stone fruits, honey and lees. Bigger in dimension and structure than the Perrieres, showing a strong spicy character but a bit less floral lift and elegance. Finishes with very good spicy persistence. "
