Dried apricot, a touch of blossom honey and white mushroom duxelles characterise the nose and promise richness. With air, a lovely hint of ripe apricot becomes more intense. The palate is rounded, generous but reverberates with a seam of citrus brightness. Mousse sparkles gently. It is the absolute citric freshness that prevails and lights the way to the finish and echoes long with its lemony purity and poise. Gorgeous.
