Notes from Bernard Bohn on the personality of this wine: "I reveal myself with apple and bitter orange freshness. My smooth persistence wraps the palate with honey and chestnut notes, beeswax, and noble tannins, reminding one of Oolong tea. I can be paired with tapas, anchovy puree, or braised veal shanks."
