Brilliant golden yellow, rich traces of viscosity on the glass, delicate notes of honey on the nose which allow for the extremely late harvest, orange zest, a lot of eucalyptos, rosemary underpinned by slight notes of passion fruit, pineapple and stewed apricots – simply delicious. Noble sweetness combined with racy acidity, soft peach skin, fragrant yellow fruit flesh, notes of various stone fruits, juicy all through. Like a noble piece of jewellery, totally on the precise and reductive side, vivacious and backed by most delicate hints of blossom honey; to be serious Rust minerality and the regional citrus tone adds to the aroma spectrum, ages perfectly, but not necessarily…
Semolina flummery with rosemary ice cream – a hit! Poppy ravioli with stewed cumquats, pralines of goose-liver, Dolcelatte with bread from dried pears, pear tart, honey sorbet with sugar melon flambée, sweet pasta with stewed strawberries & caramel-almonds, delicious fruit pralines. To match sophisticated discussions and complement an unforgettable “Dinner for two”. Ice-cold to tempered Stilton – without cucumber sandwich!
