This is intense on the nose with powerful aromas of raw bread dough, white peach, lemon, blood orange and white mushroom. The mousse is just a touch coarse here but this packs in lovely lemon, blood orange and bitter almond flavors framed by light brioche notes and a fine mineral and white cherry undertone. A little creaminess appears on the back end along with beautiful patisserie notes that flow over the fairly long finish over pithy citrus fruits. Awfully good stuff. 91pts
