A pale gold color with glints of light green typical of chardonnay grapes and in contrast to the previous 2006 vintage. The saline minerality is all-pervading. We detect toasted and smoky notes. When swirled, fresh citrus notes appear: grapefruit, yuzu and quince. They bring a cheeky youthfulness to this fine nose, combined with creamy accents and subtil salt butter caramel notes. The identity of the vintage is intertwined with a sharp and classy acidity. An enveloping texture is then revealed with accents of lemon meringue pie and subtle saline notes. Its generosity is very prominent and will continue to develop with ageing. The finish is long and full-bodied with silky sensations.
