Light towards medium-deep golden colour. Very intense nose, pure, with a fine complexity. This is indicating a high ripeness, with candied yellow fruit. There’s a certain evolution as well, a lot of nuttiness there, like chopped nuts and almost a whiff of white truffle, so very intense, almost smoky, although there isn’t really any oak presence. Very complex and intriguing nose. Palate is quite full, it’s a bold opulent texture, with layers of ripe fruit. Still keeps fairly dry, with a good sensation of freshness; mouthwatering. It has evolved a little bit so it has rounded off its edges and offers an almost creamy texture. Oak is present but well integrated. Alcohol is on the high side, but also well-concealed beneath that wealth of fruit. Long and nutty finish, nice level of complexity, plenty of character and style.
