The deep-yellow colour reflects maturity, as does the roast-hazelnut and buttered-toast bouquet. It's mouth-filling, full-bodied and explodes on the palate, with a finish that powers on and on. Bottle age and autolysis both play a role in the bouquet and flavour. Ready now. 12 per cent alcohol.
Food: Mushroom tartlets.
