The wine is rich and honeyed, with floral notes of honeysuckle on the nose. The palate, medium- to full-bodied, begins with lemon candy notes and later shows spice, apricot, and lemongrass. This is a very strong offering from the estate; it's nuanced, complex and fresh, with a depth of flavour that bodes well for longer term ageing. Pairs well with Foie gras, terrines, blue cheese, tarte tatin, crepes Suzette or duck with orange, but it will also be perfect for peach and apricot pies, cooked apples, creme brûlée with candied fruit, caramel cream and orange and pineapple parfait.

Stunningly rich in character, a wine with great power to go with its acidity and sweetness. It is dense, powerful and concentrated powered by honey and by spice from the wood. The finish has dried apricots, very aromatic.

Rather restrained now, showing terrific purity and precision, with dried pineapple, persimmon and mango notes, offset by racy honeysuckle, white peach and chamomile hints. The extremely long finish sails on, switching to yet another spectrum, with green almond, green plum and coconut accents. A thread of quinine stitches this up at the very end. Best from 2020 through 2050. 8,334 cases made.
