The wine displays a gorgeous white gold color enhanced by a continuous thread of tiny bubbles announcing a lively effervescence. The delicate nose exudes scents of butter and brioche. Flavors of almonds and hazelnuts mingle with refined fragrances of yellow fruits dominated by the freshness of citrus fruits (tangerines). Then the wine opens up with savory notes of nougat and pistachio nuts.
On the palate, the attack is fresh and reveals a perfect balance between acidity and suppleness. The aromas are reminiscent of the sweetness of cooked fruits associated with hints of almonds, dried fruits, and quinces. As the wine warms in the glass, it turns more rounded. Its silky texture is supported by a stunning length.
95 James Suckling - Some reductive meaty notes of bacon fat and flint, with lemon cream and butter too, as well as a light forest berry edge and toasted hazelnuts. The palate has attractive lemon citrus cream flavor. Super pure, there's power amongst the charm. This is a great '06.
95 Wine Spectator - This dances gracefully on the palate, with rich and expressive flavors of peach tart, raspberry sorbet, candied ginger and orange peel, and sleek acidity that leaves a mouthwatering impression on the satiny finish. Drink now through 2031.
