Vintage 2012 displays a bright yellow color with gold hints. The nose is fresh, delicate and saline. Then, a whole new universe unveils. Juicy, candied or dried apricots set the tone. Enhanced with grilled, toasted notes, the nose evolves towards complex aromas of figs, dried fruits, honey, truffle and mocha, giving the wine its amplitude. On the other side, the wood, brings soft spices of vanilla and nutmeg. On the palate, the attack is fresh and frank. Then appear the aromas of fruits with mirabelle tart, candied citrus and roasted pears notes. Finally, refreshing notes of green hazelnuts and almonds arise. The structure, signature of the vintage cuvée, is angular and complete, and the Pinot Noir plays its full role of foundation. And so, with balance, the Vintage 2012 unveils a beautiful liveliness on the palate and refined pastry notes.
