The wine has a clean, brilliant, pale gold colour and an ample, nicely open nose, mingling peachy fresh fruit aromas with more complex notes of toasted hazelnut and touches of dried apricot. From a full, substantial attack, the body fills out on powerful but elegant ripe summer fruit flavours, together with highly aromatic traces of white blossom (jasmine, honeysuckle). The density of Semillon and the refinement of Sauvignon combine in a generous and beautifully balanced finish, the mark of a fine vintage.
