Yellow-gold. Old-fashioned resonance in style and the virility of Verzenay dominates the blend, drinking you in, pissing you out. More fruit than berried; this release is a pear bomb. Wheat toast, clotted cream and hazelnut and he trails a vinous finish, deep with the sea’s conviction. Now – 2020+.
