Tasting Notes

The wine is rich and very structured. 2006 already expresses itself by minerality and coolness in mouth. Notes of honey, spices and exotic fruit are very present. Concentrated, the texture is silky and greedy. A very beautiful balance. Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish.
