Rated 95/100 by Robert Parker and Wine Enthusiast.

The color is gold.

The nose opens with notes of toast and nuts, fresh notes of citrus and yellow fruits.

The palate is generous in the attack and evolves into delicate and gourmet notes of dried apricots mixed with citrus fruits (candied lemon, tangerine).
