This wine offers a stunningly beautiful bouquet that captures the essence of the sea, paraffin, bruised apples, nuts, smoke, panettone, and intriguing peaty undertones. As it breathes, it unfurls additional layers, introducing grilled lemon, unfiltered sunflower oil, and subtle mushroom hints, enhancing its complexity and depth.

Its structure and balance are exemplary, presenting a sharp, spicy, and fresh profile that engages the senses. This bottle has grown even more appealing over time, possibly benefitting significantly from decanting, underscoring its exquisite character and my increasing appreciation for it.

This wine showcases a multifaceted and intricate profile. The bouquet is a rich tapestry of aromas, including the sweetness of beeswax and honey, complemented by notes of cherry plum and petroleum, and the maritime essence of shells. The complexity of this wine is further deepened on the palate with flavours that evoke a spectrum from briny notes to the zestiness of lemon tart.

The wine excels in balance, harmoniously blending these diverse elements. Additional flavours of marinated mushrooms, ripe apples, and nuts add to its depth. The wine's finish is noteworthy for its longevity, leaving a lasting impression of its rich, layered character. Overall, this wine is a testament to complexity and finesse, offering a sophisticated and demanding tasting experience.

4.2 / 5.0750 ml@Wix Kyiv Office · Bruno Paillard: Collection Anciens Dégorgements

The most complex wine of the evening caught me tired. A wine to spend the night with. Multilayered bouquet. Bear with me as I've found lots of curious things. Hay, green apples, green hazelnuts, flint, honey, wet stone, shells, crushed apple seeds, mushrooms, brine and lemon tart. Wonderfully fresh, prolonged and delicious. Demanding style, so I am going to repeat this experience.
