This wine is warm with touches of wood and spice. Juicy pear and apple flavors are filled out with white peach, while the toast gives extra complexity and richness. The wine, from the first vintage in this newly named domaine by François Lequin (Lequin-Colin) and Matthieu Ponson, is attractive now, but will be better from 2017.
