The nose is pleasant, starting with notes of citrus (lemon, grapefruit), white fruit (peach) but also spices like vanilla or roasting with a delicate and fine woody smell.
The attack is frank, lively and combines fat and fruitiness. It makes it homogeneous, straight, a bit nervous with a fresh and light finish. It ends with a marvelous toasted note.
