The colour is luminous, sparkling gold with amber highlights. The first nose reveals a definite mineral base, with noble fruit of white peaches & bergamot with a remarkable intensity. On agitating, the bouquet becomes gourmand and voluptuous with hints of brioche, nougat, apricot, vanilla, frangipane and Jasmine.
On the palate there is plenty of body and substance. The texture is crisp and silky. The chalky mineral note resonates magnificently with this full bodied structure and intensifies the lengthy persistence. The Verzenay & Avize duet, the two dominate crus out of the blend of the 8 that constructed this bottle, takes on its full dimension. The finish is fresh & generous, indicating a light dosage that does nothing to disturb the wine’s natural balance.
