This is balanced and refined, as a grand cru should be, with a complex bouquet of honeysuckle, hay, mild vanilla and mineral-earth notes. The complexity continues on the palate where mineral soy, floral and cinnamon elements play, though there's not particularly brisk acidity or internal tension here. Closes with good length and style, if a bit fuller, more…
Minerally and nutty, with aromas of toast and vanilla from oak but not overdone, balanced by wisps of chalk dust. Full in the mouth, with almond and peach flavors predominating. Finishes easy, accented by peppery spice.
