The 2011 shows bright yellow colour with golden hues. The nose is fresh and perfumed with honeysuckle and almond. The palate is full bodied and smooth textured, with cooked apple and stone fruits notes alongside the subtle spiciness of barrel ageing. The finish is long with a light acidity which leaves a refreshing long lasting effect.
The nose is fresh, fruity and aromatic, with ripe tropical and dried fruit characteristics. The palate is medium bodied with a succulent texture, balanced alcohol and acidity and a great concentration of dried fruit flavours, such as apricot and peach, with a honeyed, silky finish.
Greenish gold with pure, expressive aromas of pear, orange, honey, smoke and camomile. Fleshy fruit on the palate is brightened by a gentle and juicy acidity; oak adds a spiciness. Quite suave, with a gorgeous bright and smoky finish.
Wonderfully opulent and perfumed on the nose with dollops of honey allied to blossom and spicy complexity. The palate is rich and full again with great acidity, giving the wine and exceptional balance, and we suspect longevity.
Secret de Famille 2009 has a bright yellow colour, with lively pear, spice, white flower and stone fruit aromas on the nose, and fine citrus acidity on the palate to match the full, fruity character. The 2009 is medium to full, with a long refreshing sherbet and pear finish.
