Wine Review Report :

Wein-Plus rating: Very good (87 WP)
Last reviewed: 2 April 2019
Editor note: Slightly reductive nose, light nutty, smoky and dried vegetal notes, restrained yellow fruit, hint of bacon and mushrooms, touch of maize. Straightforward, fairly polished, sweetish fruit onjm the palate, touch of oak, elegant, lively acidity, light grip, good persistence, sugar candy in the background, some dried herbs and peanuts, fine sandy tannins, still very slightly astringent, salty mineral notes, very good, grippy finish.
Best to drink: Mid-2019-2022+
