The producer describes it as an aroma of ripe pears. Yes, something like that. It’s very light and fine, yet evokes the musky sexiness of the base note in a perfume. I was strongly reminded of the faint, fir-tree scent at the nape of my husband’s neck. Very nice.
The taste is delicate too. Dry, well-structured, but fragile. This works best as an aperitif, with foods that won’t overwhelm it: some mild fresh cheese (I tried mozzarella and it was an excellent match), or a handful of salted cashews. AND you have to let it get to cellar temperature or even room temperature before the flavor and scent fully manifest.
