Bright yellow. Sexy, expressive nose offers scents of yellow peach, suave oak, hawthorn and honey. Fat, plush and sweet, conveying a lower-acid impression than the entry-level bottling but greater richness and a more tactile mouthfeel. The oak has resulted in a rounder, fatter wine. Bonhomme told me he likes to wait on this wine for two years, as it retains its fruit but develops an intriguing mushroomy terroir character. Sweet, ripe and essentially gentle but still holding something back--and a touch warm on the back end. Bonhomme likes Tronçais oak for its finesse.
