Lovely, shiny yellow colour with pearly highlights.

Nose

The nose is intense and complex : a harmonious blend of fruit (peach and apricot), of flowers (violet).

The attack is fresh.

The mouth is subtle, delicate and well-balanced : notes of peach, ripe apricot and ripe pear.

The end of mouth develops well into a glorious wealth of rich aromas.
