The 2011 is a deliciously complex and aromatic wine with silky smooth textures and a refreshing finish. A bouquet of ripe stone fruits and apricots mingles with bright citrus, green apple and white flower blossom aromas. The palate is persistent and long with lovely, white peach and refreshing lemon fruit characters with a fine mineral note and a hint of white pepper and spice on the finish. There is a wonderful purity about this vintage and though it will be tempting to drink on release it has the capacity to age for a decade or two and will certainly gain in complexity.
Reviews & Scores
Brilliant straw yellow. Beautifully focused nose of yellow and white fruit, hazelnut, brioche, lemon peel and vanilla. Same amazing focus and balance of extract and freshness, without anything dominating or sticking out. Just a little compact on the finish, but it will develop. Plain delicious. (WS) 14%
