Light bright gold. Ripe pear and nectarine aromas show good clarity and pick up smoky lees and toasted grain nuances with aeration. Silky and open-knit, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors complemented by suggestions of fennel and honey. The smoky quality comes back on a long, smooth finish that leaves behind a refreshingly bitter pear skin note.

Vinous: 90
Limpid gold. Poached pear, yellow apple and a hint of ginger on the fragrant nose. Fleshy and energetic on the palate, offering juicy orchard fruit, orange zest and vanilla flavors and a late suggestion of smokiness. Finishes long and spicy, with a repeating vanilla note and a hint of anise.
