This Maranges offers aromas of white and yellow peaches on the nose, notes of tea with bergamot. The mouth has roundness without heaviness, and the ripe fruitflavor that persists until the finish is lively and more mineral-y. The texture is bold, the totally melted wood leaves room to give way to silky fruitiness while remaining pure.
