    SENSORY ANALYSIS


  • Millesime 2011

    • : Straw yellow, gold flecks.

    • Aroma : The initial nose is discreet opening up onto candied aromas after airing with notes of marzipan and chestnut preserve. Leather aromas complete the aromatic profile.

    • Taste : Supple attack, the full body coats the palate with softness. The aromas of rhubarb and citron are added to the leather. A delicate acidity balances out the whole.
