|Tasting Notes - Nose||The initial bouquet is elegant, opening to aromas of crunchy fresh fruit (bush peach), citrus fruit and a mineral touch that comes from chalky soils. The notes of violet and lilac are reminiscent of the scents of spring, and later, more bready notes, (hazelnut, candied quince and fresh butter) gradually take over. On the palate the opening is clean-cut. The Vintage 2004 has a generous freshness; the Pinot Noir intensifies its role, lending body to a tense, very lively wine.|
|Tasting Notes - Palate||On the palate, the attack is fresh and frank. Then appear the ﬁrst aromas of fruits with mirabelle tart, candied citrus and roasted pears notes. Finally, refreshing notes of green hazelnuts and almonds arise. The structure, signature of the vintage cuvée, is angular and complete, and the Pinot Noir plays its full role of foundation. And so, with balance, the Vintage 2012 unveils a beautiful liveliness on the palate and reﬁned pastry notes.|
|Tasting Notes - Finish||The finish is incredibly long.|
