Dark golden yellow, amber. Delicate vanilla oak scent, touch of port wine. Dried rose and violet. Fruity and jamy: apricot and fig. Hazelnut and licorice. Grande Champagne style, very rare. Mellow, warm, well balanced, great structure. Long finish - at least 10 minutes on the palate.
The nose is very and unevolved in first minutes; only minimal stimulation brought about by aeration in the forms of faint pear and wood scents. Far better in the mouth, as focused tastes of ripe grapes, old oak resin and candied nuts greet the taste buds; midpalate shows a bit of fire along with fruit, wood and spirit. Finishes sweet, balanced and fruity.
