Pinot Blanc Les Princes Abbés 2017
The robe is lemon yellow with light green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth.
The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. Sophisticated, we perceive a dominant of fruity scents, apple, citrus fruits (lemon) and a slight floral hint of white flowers. The airing enhances these scents and reveals broom with secondary acid candy and hop. The grapes are ripe and healthy. A little bit austere, they express very well the precision of this vintage.
The onset in the mouth is moderately ample, fleshy with a full-bodied alcohol support. The wine evolves on a medium of marked vivacity, with a sparkling note. We find the same aromas as on the nose, still dominated by citrus fruits, apple, broom and a less perceptible hint of hop and English candy. We perceives a hint of firm bitterness. The finish hs a good length, 5-6 caudalies, with a fine liveliness and a persistent bitterness. The structure of this wine shows complexity and aromatic precision. The tasty balance comes from a slight but noble bitterness, with a very good structure.
