Tasting recently after bottling (august 2013):

  • Color: Medium yellow.
  • Smell: Still a bit shy in the nose, but with remarkable terroir and variety components, such as smoke, wet stones, lime, violets, herbs, liquorice, clementine, wax and honey, in a complex palette.
  • Taste: Terrible young, but already everything in place. A precise structure and yet soft, elegant and subtle. Power and elegance in the same wine. Long and harmonic after taste, leaving the question if you swallowed or not.
  • Judgment: Fantastic already now, but should ideally be cellared a couple of years. Even excellent food would be a distraction, use it to accompany philosophic reflections. Consume at 17 oC
