Tasting Notes: Light yellow colour with a greenish tinges. An attractive, challenging nose, beginning with a fruity component dominated by citrus fruits, which continues with an expressive aroma of fennel. The palette of aromas continues to reveal itself with notes of aniseed, brioche, butter, and finally the excellent greedy notes of toasted barrel. In the mouth, the bâtonnage the wine underwent improves its excellent structure. This is a wine which will age well in the bottle.
