Since the Baumards began bottling all their wines with screw caps, it is noticeable how much more slowly they age. This pale gold-colored wine is still so full of freshness and ripe mangos, meaning that it will age for many years yet. Honey, lemon jelly and a crisp texture add to the continuing potential of the wine. Drink from 2017.
