Tasting note

Light gold. Nectarine, poached pear, toasted nuts, anise and buttered toast on the complex, mineral-tinged nose. Deeply concentrated but energetic and precise as well, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors along with notes of brioche and marzipan. A bitter citrus pith note adds definition to the impressively long, smoky finish. Shows more power and heft than I've experienced from this bottling in recent years. Score - 94.

LCBO
Featured in TASTE Magazine, Winter 2012 issue. This top-drawer choice tastes like fine white Burgundy with bubbles. While the aromas toy with cooked apple, creamy lemon custard, buttered toast and vanilla, the attack on the palate is a harmonious melody of complexity, elegance and power. There’s flavours of apple, coconut, toasted brioche, creamy vanilla and wet stones anchored by tantillizing acidity. It exudes charm in a bottle.
