"Vivid straw-yellow. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes pear nectar, yellow plum, anise, white flowers and ginger, along with a smoky nuance in the background. In a generous style, offering ripe orchard and citrus fruit flavors and a note of honeysuckle. Finishes with gentle grip and very good clarity, the pit fruit and floral notes repeating. "
