98 Points

Light golden yellow; fine mousse. Delicate yeasty aromas underpin ripe yellow tropical fruit, a hint of caramel, tobacco nuances, floral notes, a touch of cherry and honey. Juicy, silky, elegant texture, creamy, yet powerful body, lovely core fruit expression, finesse, richly structured with a long-lasting finish and fine nougat echo. Still very youthful, plenty of further development potential in the bottle.
