Tasting notes The colour is green-yellow with a few greenish hues. The nose is expressive with strength and aromas of ripe apricot, mango, orange rind and wood scents (from the French oak) such as hazelnut and baked bread follow. Fruit forward richness fills the mouth with flavours of vanilla, rich cream, coconut and hazelnut butter. The finish has duration, volume, intensity and great complexity.
