Still a youthful pale gold colour and fine beading. Rich and layered with nougat, earthy truffle, preserved lemon, briny roast chicken skin, smoky toasted nuts and creamy butter wrapper. Profound, deep and remaining still youthfully sharp. The extended time on lees brings complexity and power which will continue to develop over the coming years.
