Butterscotch and glazed fruit on the nose as well as apricot, ripe pear and floral notes. It has a broad palate with similar notes on tasting.
It shows really well alongside paté and roquefort but also fruit tarts, pastries and chocolate desserts.
“It has an enticing satsuma-skin aroma, grapey and slightly waxy. It’s very full bodied but has the intensity of fruit, acidity and bitterness to bring balance and freshness. A particularly concentrated vintage with real impact.” Matt Walls, Decanter 2018-11-01
