Winemaker`s notes:

Golden colour with streaks of old gold. Wonderful smell with bountiful flowery aromas of acacia and meadow flowers that keep the intensity with ease even tens of minutes after the wine is poured into the glass. Flowery aromas are followed by numerous fruity notes of a very ripe and sweetish character, like apricot, banana and peach. The retronasal perception is dominated by spicy notes reminiscent of cloves and nutmeg. Very layered and pleasant smell. Taste is delicious and full, strong, yet of incredibly well-balanced freshness. Characterized by exceptional minerality, light saltiness, ripe fruitiness, certain creaminess at the end and a somewhat bitterish finish in the aftertaste. Very rich wine which lost none of its elegance or harmoniousness to complexity and intensity, but even possesses the elegance of Montrachet and intensity of Chateau Grillet.
