  • What the experts say...

    "For sure, it demonstrates a lot of vanilla from the new oak on the nose, complemented by almond, French patisserie and touches of white peach. [...] The palate is very well balanced, with thickly textured honeyed fruits that lacquer the inside of the mouth and stay there." N. Martin (02/2015)
