A beautiful range of aromas that begins with empyreumatic notes (brioche, toast…) highlighting the fresh fruity character. It is enriched by floral, spicy and balsamic touches: musk, flint, biscuit, hawthorn, candied citrus fruits, pear tatin, green tea...

Palate

Energetic, precise and soft, enhanced by a strong aromatic and mineral finish.
