Bright, light golden yellow, with a green-grey hue, a juvenile wine, ‘just before budbreak’, pure and still restrained, vanilla pods and fresh (hazel) nut, a whiff of Brioche, opens slowly in the glass, with a fragrant bouquet of white flowers, green apple and fresh stone fruit, starting soft and dry, then sappy and fresh, medium bodied, elegant yet tightly woven with finely chiselled fruit tones emerging (again green apples, citrus, and fresh peaches), very balanced structure, while fine toasty aromas and yeasty spice witness its youth, an almost saline, mineral freshness characterizes the long finish. This is a worthy representative of an outstanding vintage. Decant or give it some more time in the cellar.
