Smooth and round, with meaty melon and pear aromas as it is. Which is quite out of the ordinary for this wine, one that usually pushes crisp white fruits and minerality. But because 2003 was so hot, this vintage is a bit sugary and heavy, but still very pleasant. Drink well chilled. Imported by Jorge Ordoñez/Fine Estates from Spain.
