White wine with a medium intense colour intensity here. There is a slight tinge of pink in this one. Almost like a beige colour. Nose is quite round and fruity. Rather sweet, there are some notes of honey, wax, yellow plum, ripe stone fruit, with a floral component. Palate is quite full. There is a slight phenolic presence there. A gentle bitterness in the shape of lemon zest, lime zest. There are some notes of almond, chopped almond, so a quite a lot of dry extract in this one. High acidity. There is probably a slight hint of oak in the background, but not too noticeable. So I would say more of a Burgundian style, but with a presence of more phenolics. Quite long finish. A wine I would call, probably thanks to its youth, something that should develop and gain some more roundness. Not really a style I know, but quite interesting wine. So put it back in your cellar and come back to it in the coming two to three years.
