Tasting notes

Beautiful yellow colour with green highlights intense fruity nose,
especially white peach and apricot.
Subtle truffle nuances come to the fore with aeration.
Starts out very broad and opulent on the palate.
Full-bodied and superbly balanced, powerful, and long. 

The weather

One of the characteristics of 2011 was an extremely dry spring. Based on the measured rainfall in April, May and June this was the driest spring since 1949.Happily, summer brought some rain which allowed the vine to continue its growth. With a dry September, we were able to harvest in optimal conditions.
