Description

Guido Brivio set out with the goal of making an elegantly oaked, Burgundian style white Merlot that would really stand out from any of the other white Merlots out there. It would be fair to say that he smashed that goal with this wine! Firstly this wine appears way more developed for its age, maybe because of the maturation for 8 months in new oak barriques. It really comes into its drinking window after a year, and continues to evolve and give for 7 years or more. In comparison, most white Burgun-dies need significantly longer with bottle age to exhibit anything like this sort of elegance and complexity.

TASTING NOTES
Colour: Intense straw tinted yellow. Nose: Complex and intense. With delicate flower nuances, notes of exotic fruits and citrus, roasted hints like vanilla and butterscotch, and light nuances of herbs. Pal-ate: Smooth and rich, fruity, elegant and harmonious with a good structure. Mineral and persistent at the finish. Very good balance.
