Tasting soon after bottling (summer 2016)
  • Color: Middle yellow
  • Smell: No surprise - a lot of honey, also lime, elegant botrytis in the background, fresh.
  • Taste: Rich, mighty, well made, without any sharp corners, stylishness beats body, typically the 20115 vintage.
  • Judgment: A majestic wine with the elegance intact, seldom seen combination of power and subtleness.
Tasting summer 2017
  • Color: Bright yellow
  • Smell: Sweet, sweet smell from dried fruit, apricots and peaches.
  • Taste: Thick, fat, rich but soft taste, an out-of-the-world concentration.
  • Judgment: Indisputably the greatest wine we have made so far, if preferring this style (like we do).

2017 Decanter gold medal, 95 points

Decanter tasting protocol:
Lovely, inviting, pure lemony nose. The palate displays intense white peach and orange blossom characters. Lovely intensity and vibrancy here. Still youthful but very promising with a long, minerally finish.
