High-pitched nose hints at minerals and menthol; showing much less fruit today than the comparatively flamboyant Batard. Firmly built classy and minerally but quite elegant and discreet.

An airy and elegant floral and spice nose that is distinctly higher-pitched is trimmed in a deft touch of wood and while the oak is more prominent on the palate it doesn't seem to unduly compromise the detail or delineation of the minerally medium weight flavors that are delicious classy and persistent.
